>> And I thought that you are looking for a "thing" that I would describe as
"a Delivery Unit which contains a primary resource and at least one
additional resource".

Actually - it would be a primary resource and zero or more resources. The
key is to have a term that refers only to primary resources. 

Perhaps we could define and use the term 'primary resource' instead of Web
unit.   I don't like the term Web Unit.    We just need a name for the

Oh,  hmmm.  Can't use Primary Resource.   Because we would have to define it
as primary resource plus zero or more additional resources.   And that
clearly doesn't work.  


Is there another, existing term for:

primary resource and zero or more resources intended to be rendered with it

NOTE: Resources are not considered Web Units unless the author intends for
them to be linked to directly (and not just as part of another Web Unit).  '

NOTE: Resources may be rendered collectively or in any combination.

NOTE: To specify a Web Unit it is sufficient to specify the URI of its
primary resource. 

EXAMPLE 1: A web page including all embedded images and media. 

EXAMPLE 2:  An interactive movie-like shopping environment where the user
navigates about and activates products to have them demonstrated, and moves
them to cart at the bottom of the screen to buy them.
