I tend to agree with Roy's comments, but have one issue with the 
proposed language:

Huh?  Resources are indeed connected by hypertext links, but *also*, you 
are saying, by "descriptive metadata"?  I may not understand what you 
mean but I think I disagree with what this actually says.  We could 
either (a) try to find something else to say about metadata or (b) just 
stop after the word "links", losing "and descriptive metadata".
