I agree with this sentiment. However, I think it is also worthwhile
having the RFC editor make a pass on the URIs with the author to verify
that these indeed are the "best" URIs. Guidance on what makes a URI "the
best" is somewhat subjective, but using Heather's list as guidelines
instead of hard-and-fast rules makes the most sense to me.
