How do we establish GoodURIs for MultipleCorrectBehaviors Resources?

The "As'Used'In" approach says: make a web page which uses a term for the Resource in a highly-constraining way (one might even say "defining it"). Then construct a URI which comprises the URI of the page with the in-page name of the Resource.

One syntax for this is HashURIs, but there are others.

We can imagine a URI scheme like

    used:W3C,http://www.w3.org/


In either case, the semantics are something like: "the thing call FOO in document BAR".

There's a huge open issue about whether using an AsUsedIn identifier constitutes endorsement of the original document. It's annoying if it does, but what is being identified if it doesn't?
