Current wording:
"
Support object references 
Issue (i.019.01):

Maybe split into targeting on the request and identifying the data in
response. Define "object". One definition is that it is a "resource". This
may be specific to a programming model and therefore be out of scope. This
needs discussion.

Issue (i.019.02):

Everything on the Web is a resource. SOAP has the notion of passing by a URI
which has a specified lifetime.
"

I think we satisfy part of this requirement in DR200. Bullet 1 in DR200:
"Unique specification of the program or object and procedure or method to be
called based on URI syntax."

Defining 'object' appears to out of scope, especially in light of some of
the discussion around programming language bindings (1).

Any opposition to dropping this req?
