I belief this system is to used for all external available URL's. 

For exmaple images (the ever famous "valid html xxx" pictures do follow this example)
the official URL is 
'http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/images/vcss'
'http://www.w3.org/Icons/valid-xhtml10'

So if sometime in the future the w3.org beliefs they should change ihe image
content from jpg to png these URL will still be valid.

Of course some dot jpg for a bullet list on a webpage is unlikely to be linked
by someone externally.
