Does a claim for www.example.com/documents/ imply that any URI that includes this intial string would be accessible? 

For example, www.example.com/documnets/document1.html may be a unit authors could claim is accessible, while an image that is a subset of that unit (ex. www.example.com/documents/pics/pic1.gif) wouldn't be included.

Seems like what we need is a way for authors to specify an appropriate level of granularity for claims meant to cover multiple URIs.

I think this would make it much more likely that owners of large web sites would post a claim. So I think it is a good thing. But will it make it harder for a user to determine the status of a particular URI within that tree?
