You make a good point.  It has less to do with confusion
between representation and resource, though, and more
to do with the essential inscrutibility of resources.

Why be so precise about something that can't be
nailed down anyhow?  It seems like using a micrometer
to measure a ditch.

But I think somewhere there is a valid Best Practice
lurking, and we're off the subject now.
