I've checked in a fixed version, also adding some relationships to
make your TopBraid diagram look better, introducing
"HttpRepresentation" as distinct from an HttpEntity, and so on.

The idea behind the names is that a Correspondence is *of* a
WaRepresentation *to* a Rfc2616Resource (i.e. the wa-representation
corresponds to the Rfc2616Resource). Sorry for the turgid prose.

At some point I liberalized Entity -> WaRepresentation, perhaps under
Tim's influence. I have considered changing WaRepresentation to
"Value" a la Roy Fielding's paper, although I know most people will
find that objectionable, but "entity" doesn't work very well any more
now that the non-resource-specific headers such as Expires: are
excluded, while "representation" is difficult for the usual reasons of
not necessarily representing anything and so on.

I don't know - as you can tell my usual method is to try a term on for
size for a while, and change it every few weeks until I settle on
something I like. I guess this is annoying. Alan suggests we just use
numbers in the URIs and then let the labels drift until they find a
nice place. (Will TopBraid show labels instead of URIs? I'll see if
Protege does.)
