> ...FWIW, the name "app" IMHO is very very misleading. Maybe you could consider something that more reflects what's being identified by the URIs?

… which raises the question what “app” stands for.
The draft talks about archives and packages, which explains “a” and the first “p”, but I don’t understand the second “p” (pointer?).

Yes, I read about the desire to stay compatible with https://www.w3.org/TR/2015/NOTE-app-uri-20150723/, but it probably would help to have a more accurate retronym if that is necessary.

(I’m interested in this as it is sometimes useful to have URIs for references from a CBOR data item to other data items within a bigger, compound data item.  We could define this based on this scheme or in a different way, possibly based on the way the compound data item is formed.)
