Thoughts

UIDs that are URLs

It seems like in the 80% case (perhaps 99.99% case on the Web), a UID is going to be a URL, thus a common pattern will likely be things like:

<a class="url uid" href="http://example.com/contentspace/somenumber">the item</a>

UID + URL -> permalink?

Can you infer that if something is a URL and a UID that it is also a permalink? It seems so. I can't think of any semantic of "permalink" that isn't covered by the union of the semantics of URL and UID.

Proposals

Just use UID from hCard

abbr pattern

Use the abbr-design-pattern to allow identifiers to be more fully described.

<abbr class="uid" title="urn:isbn:0950788120">0 9507881-2-0</abbr>
