Well, me too. But I'm now of the opinion that 5 yrs of implementation
experience of httpRange-14 is saying it's an unnecessary overhead and
an impediment to linked data adoption by the mainstream. Talis is
heavily invested in making linked data successful and has a great deal
of implementation experience in infrastructure, publishing and
consumption which is informing the arguments in my post.
