Organization need to have a clear understanding of what they are minting URIs for.

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.
