My thoughts were along the same line as Karl's in this post.

Once Paths are declared and "reserved" then they are no longer
available for anyone else to use because there is an 'assumed' usage

For example.

If sony ever came out with a Play Station Portable 3, (p3p maybe) that
URI with /p3p/ would NOT resolve to the expected privacy information,
but to a product page.

That was all i was attempting to point out, that by imposing a
structure, you might be breaking other things.

Just a thought.
