the name versus location debate but I suppose I am just kind of nostalgic.
Rather than write a long email I've written up a little essay. Please

starting with "http://" or "uuid:" You can choose to use an anycast

HTTP URIs (haven't you ever used Google's cache as more authoritiative
than the referenced domain?) etc.
