That would be ok if the web represented only an 
architecture used by the general public.  But when 
used as an enterprise infrastructure, rights such 
as read only could play a part.   It is fact that 
location types (not link types, one can 
separate these) are reliable in varying degrees.

Depends on the application domain, yes.  Reading 
the literature out of companies such as Microsoft, 
the intention is to web-ize everything, so a broader 
view of what is On the Web may be needed.

I agree that such mechanisms are necessary in some systems; I dispute
whether they should be part of the Web architecture.

Linking where you have read-only rights isn't robust; unlike with the
resource/URI relationship, there is no guidance, much less guarantee, that
a representation's structure is stable over time.
