No.  In my hypothetical scenario they are simply URLs which when
dereferenced produce the required source code.  They are "cannonical", in a
sense, and can be remapped to other URLs, but they are URLs, nonetheless.

You have not demonstrated that a URL-based semantics would not work.  Only
that "Sam doesn't like it".  But I thought that was one of the original
design goals of the module loaders API:  to allow users to apply whatever
arbitrary URL resolution semantics they like.
