Independent of the relicensing debate, I don't understand this comment 
at all. Printed works very commonly include URLs to point people to 
material that is online. Some amount of adjustment has been involved as 
people sorted out the issues involved, but at this point it's quite 
routine. So I don't see why we should imagine for ourselves a rule 
against pointing to the web from print. (Or vice versa, for those people 
who think Wikipedia citations have to be to something available online.)
