 The root resource is loaded by the server itself (see httpd.java).
 This resource is the entry of the resource space.

 Because the Resource class has to be as generic as possible. Resource
 is in the w3c.tools.store package and in this package we don't have
 to know its parent. This package only manage the storage of resources.
