I hadn't been aware of this until you mentioned it earlier in the thread.
Indeed, I think URL versus URI is the crux of the problem. We do need a
UriResolver to be easily extensible to non-URL schemes, in particular URNs
(most often UUID-based URNs).
It looks as if mxURL has some extensibility built in, but I don't see in the
API how to plug in URN catalogs.
I suppose one could write a more general URI resolver and delegate URL-based
schemes to mxURL...
