Fielding:  "As a *separate* issue, Web Services cannot be considered an equal
part of the Web until they allow their own resources to become
interconnected with the rest of the Web. ... The reason to do so is solely
for the benefit of those Web Services; so that they can participate
in the unforeseen ways in which the Web allows resources to be shared."

There exist information resources that must participate only 
in known ways.   Unforeseen ways are not acceptable.  That is why a 
CONOPs is written for and becomes part of the contract for handling 
such information.  

The Web *is* an unequal partner in such transactions by design.
