That is not correct. Their primary purpose is to act as unique
identifiers, but the normative text (properly) sets no expectation
about whether they should be usable for dereference. Many people feel
that dereferenceable identifiers are generally speaking of higher
value and are predisposed to use "http:" everywhere. This is one
reason it's usually wrong to micromanage users' choice of URI
