Mostly these are great.  A couple of suggested corrections to the logging 
of what I said:

> The interesting question is, does the code that goes with that library 
have an interpretive model, or is it interpreting something more 
declarative. 

I think that should be:

"The interesting question is, does the code that goes with that library 
have an imperative programming model, or is it interpreting something more 
declarative. "

----------

Also, near the end:

Should be:

But then the question is about what the contract is between the client and 
the server.
... The client is typically responsible for interpreting any fragment ids 
supplied to
... it, but that doesn't say much about constructing new ones.
... I don't think there's in all cases a prohibition against the client 
"constructing"
... URIs by altering things after the ? or even in the path segments 
before.
... These manipulations are legal insofar as the authority for the URI has 
documented
... the URI assignment policy.  Given that, in many cases, the Javascript 
doing
... that manipulation is sourced from that authority, I think it's often 
acceptable.
... So, it's not clear to me that client side construction of URIs is 
limited
... to minting new fragids.

Thanks.  With those changes, the minutes look fine to me.
