I'm glad that you emphasized *kinds*.  But I want to emphasize that
the difference is a fundamental semantic gap that no URI can bridge.

Generally, of course. But I am make very specific use i.e., using HTTP URIs to denote things in a manner that leverages what the architecture of the World Wide Web offers implicitly i.e., the ability to denote things unambiguously on/in the Web medium using fragment identifiers [1][2].

Although I sympathize with Tim B-L's goals, URIs can never convert
an informal NL to a formal CNL.


In the context of my Linked Data related posts [3][4], I am looking at the combined use of HTTP URIs and RDF to create a CNL. The consequence of said CNL is Blogic [5].
