The latter. There could be other reports, which would have different
URIs.

I agree that 2.3.2 is too informal and should be clarified, perhaps like
this

'... there are two resources: a report of "the current weather in
Oaxaca" and of "the of weather in Oaxaca on 1 August 2004". The Oaxaca
weather site assigns two URIs to these two different resources.'

It might also be noted that on 1 August 2004, those two URIs might well
return identical representations.
