"Information space" still has a mystical incantation 
kind of feel.  They are actually three systems sharing 
a fourth system, the addressing system in which the 
address doubles as a name.  

I realize you are trying to get a point across in 
that description, but I don't see what it is. I 
think possibly you attempting to combine a technical 
and a social distinction.

The distinction of systems sharing a common 
"somethingThatMakesItANetwork" is progress.

I think the properites of the web as an information space
in the wide sense is so valuable and important to understand that
we should maybe have a separate term for it and/or make the
distinction really clear.
