But why should the URI-to-resouce binding be any more constant
than the resource-to-entity body relationship? In the general
case, that is, rather than wrt specific schemes where that
constraint might be imposed over and above anything specified
in RFC 2396.

The President isn't always the same person, and whichever 
person it happens to be this week isn't always the same bunch 
of atoms. There's scope for variation over time at _all_ levels
of description.
