"Open: issue deepLinking-25: What to say in defense of principle that deep linking is not an illegal act?"

I believe that this is an issue outside the scope of the 
web architecture, and therefore, outside the scope of the 
charter for this document.   The fact that the architecture 
makes "deep linking" possible does not confer legality or 
illegality on it.  These are issues of local legal codes enforced 
by the community which those codes govern.   

While it is useful for technical members of the W3C staff 
and others to contribute insight to the public discussions 
of such issues, they do not belong in the web architecture 
document as they do not affect that architecture until such 
time as a representative governing body requires that the 
architecture be used to enforce the legal codes asserted by 
that governing body.

In short, the TAG cannot normatively state what is or is 
not "legal" with respect to social governance.

Hello www-tag,

The TAG invites your comments on the latest draft
of the Architecture Document [1]. The TAG expects
to publish a first public Working Draft (on the
TR page) of the Architecture Document in a few weeks
and would like material feedback on the current draft.

The TAG does not commit to responding to every comment;
this is not a formal call for review. The usual TAG
policy [2] regarding email on this list is in effect.

Please be concrete in your comments. Propose alternative
language. Avoid sustaining long threads.

Chapter 1 ("Identifiers and Resources") may deserve the
most attention -- it has received a lot more attention
from the TAG than the other chatpers. On the other hand,
concrete suggestions for how to structure the other
chapters could also help us improve the first public
draft.

Thank you,

   - Ian
