I can┬Ęt really comment on that before we have had a serious terminology
discussion as it's not at all helpful going around changing one term at
a time. But I think I prefer requested resource over targeted resource
assuming it intends to mean the same thing (Request-URI).

Related to this there also needs some explanatory text describing why
operations operating on an URI as such like PUT/DELETE and content
negotiation do not mix very well.
