Well, I've proposed "Web Resource", which is the subclass of Resources
which have web accessible representations.

So, if for a given URI you GET a "200 OK" response, it is a "web resource".

But what real utility does that provide the user? Why the need for any
name at all? Or why the need for a subclass of Resource?
