You are making an unsupported assertion. CC-BY-SA is precisely
structured (as are all BY licenses) to support attribution URIs; that
is why 4(c)(iii) exists. CC metadata standards allow for attribution
URIs [1], and when you license a work through the CC website, you can
specify an attribution URI as an alternative to a name. You are
confused by the attribution parties clause; it has nothing to do with
the explicit provisions for URIs.
