Okay, I see what you're saying, but is it necessary?

A long time ago, the keyserver URL said URI and we changed it for 
reasons that I can't remember.

Back then, the URI *identified* a resource, but this doesn't make much
sense in the OpenPGP context (were fingerprints are used to identify
keys).  The keyserver location is just that, a location.

The URI terminology has changed since then.

If URI doesn't mean what it used to, does it then make sense to change
both the keyserver and policy URLs to URIs?
