Sick about URIs? My Wishlist URI

Following the idea of having clear HTTP URIs, I now extended my list of http://www.aheil.de/freebusy and http://www.aheil.de/software with my wishlist currently being with amazon: http://www.aheil.de/wishlist. What’s cool about this approach? At first it looks much better than http://www.amazon.de/gp/registry/Z5LA1EEWOT64 and is far more intuitive. Second, when moving to another country my wishlist URI stays the same, even when changing from amazon.de to amazon.co.uk. Finally, whatever happens to Amazon – I don’t care about my wishlist – my URI just stays the same. About 10 years ago, in 1998, I was a quite good customer of Telebuch.de, one of the very first German online bookstores before Amazon bought them and consequently all the URIs changed.
