Pardon the intrusion.  I'm wondering what this guessing game
is about.  Unless Roy is the naming authority, what significance
can attach to what he thinks the above URI identifies?

My other question has to do with the "HTML rendition" part
of the reply.  If URIs can identify anything, not just documents,
why wouldn't you guess that the above URI identifies section 10
of RFC 2616 directly, instead of an HTML rendition of same?

Thanks,
