Precisely. And in the real world... they don't always have that. Neither
the minters nor the users of URIs, especially the users of http URIs,
where you can find so many potential http URIs that are different but
seem to refer to the same thing.
ONE of the benefits of info is that the registry process forces minters
to develop that clear understanding (to some extent), and documents it
for later users. There are also other pros and cons.
But again, I think http URIs _used appropriately_ can certainly serve
the same purpose as info uris. In actuality, there seems to be a lot of
things causing people to use them inappropriately.
