Well, not the same *resource*;  the examples illustrated two URIs  
that, at a given time, pointed to the same *representation*, but the  
URIs referred to distinct *resources*.    However, yes you'd probably  
want to explicitly represent the fact that the various URIs that refer  
to, for example, "the weather in Oaxaca" at various times are all  
related by the fact that they're about "the weather in Oaxaca" (e.g.,  
so you could do a historical analysis about humidity changes in Oaxaca  
over time).
