Even so, I think we should continue to restrict string matches to exact, 
case-sensitive matches, as XML Namespaces does for namespace URIs.  Since 
we don't mandate that any of these URIs necessarily be resolvable, using 
URI resolution machinery (which *might* know about the special http: 
matching rules) to handle them seems too heavyweight in most cases.
