Hi, all!

In the api documentation there's the following text, about
the class w3c.tools.store.Resource:
--
The resource class describes an object, accessible
through the server. Resource objects are required to
have the following properties: 

    1 They must be persistent (their life-time can span
     multiple httpd life-time). 
    2 They must be editable, so that one can change
     some of their aspects (such as any associated
     attribute). 
    3 They must be self-described: each resource
     must now what kind of attribute it understands. 
    4 They must be able to update themselves: some of
     the meta-information associated with a resource
     may require lot of CPU to compute. 
    5 They must implement some name-service policy.
--

Can anyone explain me the last two itens?

Regards,
Julianne.
