what kind of identifier should web concepts have? there are probably three general design choices:

  • a simple non-URI identifier such as http-method:GET
  • a dereferencable URI such as http://webconcepts.info/concepts/http-method/GET
  • a non-dereferencable URI such as urn:webconcept:http-method:GET

all these methods have pros and cons, i'd be interested to hear opinions.

particularly interesting is how the identifier translates to people adding their own concepts and values. i am considering having a registry for the concepts, and then the registry entry for the concept has to say where to look up values. does that make sense?

currently leaning towards using the http://webconcepts.info/concepts/http-method/GET approach, which is robust (global identifier) and works as a link (dereferences to a representation).

this is related to #25 which will change some URIs, but overall the important aspect is to use referencable URIs as concept/value identifiers.

closing this as referenceable URIs probably make the most sense and have been in use for a while now. and nobody has been asking for anything else.
