is it a URI or a URL? if it's strictly a URL, that's fine, URL as a term is
not deprecated, it's merely a subset of URI. but if you intend to
be able operate on the URN side of the URI house, then you need
to use URI properly.

as for ref, i think that the door to the barn has been open
for a long time and it may be challenging to accomplish a
general fix. i think instead that for specific entities that use
ref (e.g., highways) you'll get farther by specifying what ref
means for the class of entity.
