Hi Anne,

You might like to look in on public-html-comments@w3.org

This made reference to a proposed <article> tag.  This has been something that's bothered me ever since HTML 3.2 ... HTML documents (as resources) can be created, deleted but never exhausted.  This is a bit unnatural.  Although there are fossils of extinct species, the probability of a member of that species becoming a fossil is very tiny.  Inexhaustibly changes the nature of archives.

Second, Government Resources are different in kind to Commercial Resources.  As the late Tip O'Neill said "All Politics are Local".  It's a long discussion, but I think that "All (Government) RDF is Local" might be a fair statement.
