The question I ask is does the terminology of the 
AWWW change what an implementer perceives as a 
requirement or best practice?

Math was cumbersome until the invention of zero. 
For all the philosophical sophistry possible when 
talking about nothing, zero is just a placeholder.  
It makes the notation practical.  To me, a resource 
is a zero.  An information resource means has 
a dereferencable value.  I don't find that a hard 
concept to grasp or one that would cause me to 
implement a web application differently.
