Proposal: Use ISSUE-57 instead of creating a new issue, but modify its
    title to match its description and its origins (Giovanni's email).

Current title: "The use of HTTP Redirection"

Change to: "Mechanisms for obtaining information about the intended
                 meaning of a given URI"

	   [I've tried about 20 different versions of this title and
	   am not happy with any of them. There are several things
           wrong with this one. But I see no reason to be
	   perfectionist about this; we only need an issue title that
	   doesn't presuppose a particular solution, scheme, or protocol.]

           [If you don't like this wording please let's work on it before
           the telcon - working out consensus wording live
           will take forever.]

Append to the description:

	"On its 2011-dd-dd telcon [6] the TAG noted that members of
	the community (e.g. in [7]) report that the performance
	characteristics and deployment complexity of using 303
	redirects leave them feeling that they have little option but
	to use 200 responses for this purpose, at variance with the
	TAG's httpRange-14 resolution [8]."

        [6] (TBD)
	[7] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-lod/2010Nov/0035.html
        [8] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-tag/2005Jun/0039.html

Also remove Stuart's signature from the description as only some of the
text is attributable to him, even as it stands.  (Sorry Stuart.)

My apologies for bouncing around a bit on this one.  I had previously
overlooked ISSUE-57 because of its title.  If its title is changed, as
it should be in any case, then I believe this issue
will be an appropriate place to track further work.

Jonathan
