An LEID _has no general location semantics_.

The fact that you _always_ _have_ to do a mapping from an LEID, to get
something that _does_ have full location semantics (the RLOC) is the surest
sign of that.

Saying that a particular name 'has location semantics' because there's a
mapping system that translates that name into _another_ name, one which
_does_ unquestionably have location semantics, is totally ludicrous. By that
reasoning, DNS names have location semantics.
