Sure... he goes...

Corrected proposal (incorporating the sugestionfrom Walden Mathews [1])

1) Replace all occurences of the noun phrase "information resource" with 
the noun phrase "web resource".

2) Replace the defining sentence for the noun phrase "information 
resource" (section 3.1 1st para, 1st sentence) :

"The term Information Resource refers to resources that convey 
information. Any resource that has a representation is an information 


"The term Web Resource is applicable to resources for which web 
acesssible representations are available and/or which may be interacted 
with through an exchange of representations. Any resource that has a web 
accessible  representation is an web resource."

3) [Optional]  Consider adding a nearby sentence: "Colloquially, Web 
Resources are said to be "on-the-web"."

Best regards
