It's not that the content cannot be encoded as a URI, but whether people
will want to. But in specific, you can bet that people will want to put
both WSRF EndPoint References and WS-Names in, and IIRC some of those
are expressed as XML document fragments?
I could also think of people (especially from the Data community)
wanting to put much richer things inside the Source and Target, and I'd
imagine that some of them would resent having to force the descriptions
of what to talk to into a URI...
