In RDF a URI denotes something.
In Linked Data a URI is de-referencable. Thus, it has the dual function 
(delivered by explicit or implicit indirection) of denoting something 
while also identifying a Web resource based simulacrum [1].    (02)

No.    (04)

People should be free to publish data with ease [2][3]. Other 
technologies in the stack can deliver value in the form of coreference 
reconciliation etc..    (05)

should be able to do this without owning a domain or web server, at 
least at first blush)    (08)
