While I'm not saying you should look under the hood of the server (or
guessing from the URI)  looking at the representation returned by HTTP
may not be enough, e.g.
<http://Example.org/weather/ch/Bern/archive/2007-09-13> is probably not
identifying the same resource as <http://Example.org/weather/ch/Bern>
even if (today) you would get the same representation.
