Simple: when the scheme and term of two different entries are
identical, then you have confidence that they refer to the same
concept. When the scheme URI is absent, the term is ambiguous.
That’s what scheme and term mean, and that’s all that they mean.
If you want to use a dereferencable protocol scheme for your
category’s scheme URI, and want to run a service providing
resources at the given URI, that’s fine, and more power to you.
But nothing like that is mandated, much less is any approach for
deriving a dereferencable URI for a single term.
