I was considering to use the 'url' tag for a link to the real-time passing
times of our stops in Flanders, Belgium:


or http:/mijnlijn.be/303058, which expands to the above url.

the stop's id number is already contained in ref:De_Lijn for all these
stops, I might drop the ref:De_Lijn tag if/when I do that.
