Norm:  I think these minutes are mostly good, but there are two 
corrections that I believe necessary to get the sense of what I said on 
the call:

<asMinuted>
NM: My definition of an information resource leaves open the possibility 
that our httpRange-14 resolution allows me to return 200 for the namespace 
document. I
</asMinuted>
<shouldBe>
NM: My definition of an information resource leaves open the possibility 
that our httpRange-14 resolution allows me to return 200 for the namespace 
itself. </shouldBe>

I think we've agreed that there is so far no consensus among the TAG as to 
exactly what a namespace is, but I think there are at least some potential 
definitions that meet the Arch Doc. definition of an information resource 
[1].   Accordingly, my point was specifically that our resolution to 
httpRange-14 >might< be taken to license a 200 status code, as opposed to 
302, for retrieval of the namespace itself. 

<asMinuted>
NM: Information resource is either a synonym of document or very close
document. I
</asMinuted>
<shouldBe>
NM: My understanding is that Tim takes the view that "information 
resource" is either a synonym of document or very close</shouldBe>

I understand that Tim prefers to use the term "document" to include 
everything that meets the definition of an info resource, and I'm still 
feeling that there are some important info resources that don't fit my 
commonsense associations with the word "document".  In the end, that's 
just a discussion of exactly which definition we adopt for the word 
"document", since I think there is agreement on what info resource means. 
The scoping of the term "document" is a discussion we should indeed have 
at some point.  I think my first point above holds in any case.  I'd be 
grateful if you would edit the minutes.

Thank you.

Noah
