So far I think this supports Alan R's approach, which is that
'information resource' is not a natural category and someone just
needs to say what the has-webarch-representation relation is, not in
general but on a case-by-case basis.

Asking "when is x a webarch-representation of y?" is more productive

idea that a description of a document is not a webarch-representation
of the document (unless it is pathologically self-describing),
something that httpRange-14 does not explain.
