/ Tim Berners-Lee <timbl@w3.org> was heard to say:
[...]
| So a URI is a string whose sole use in the web architecture
| is to denote that information resource.

To be more precise, we say (in 2.1) that URIs should be used to identify
resources.

We go on to say (in 2.2) that some resources are information resources.

We don't say that URIs only identify information resources.

| I want to be able to model lots and lots of uses of URIs in existing
| technology in RDF. This means importing them wholesale,
| it needs the ability to use a URI as a URI for the web page without
| asking
| anyone else.

That's httpRange-14 and I thought we had reached consensus that we did
not have to answer that in WebArch V1.0 (coming out of our Basel
meeting) and that we'd do a Finding pointing out that there is not
consensus on the range of HTTP URIs.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
