I see you're taking the "link" part as necessity for beign "web",
while i take HTTP, universal URL accessibility as the necessary part.
E.g. i think this is on the web, even with no links out  :)

Yes discussion is good, that's what i was saying anyway.

I'd argue it isn't so when one gives definitions, kind of implying
consensus and technical soundness.

I was sadden to discover that since 1-2 years  ISWC is considered a B
