Well, I'm not sure if I understood the inteded difference between the 
Web Resource and External WebResource. But ... at it look for me Web 
Resource are Internal Web Resources + External WebResources. For the 
later we have the constraint to be dereferencable. It looks at least 
strange ... to impose a higher constraint to external resources than 
for internal resources (which are: Annotation IDs, AnnotationPage IDs,
 AnnotationCollection IDs).

Second: I'm not sure if the argument with the URN holds in this 
context.  Dereferencable doesn't mean that it is accessible using the 
exact given URL, but you can have a online resolve service that is 
able to locate and provide access to the resource identified by the 
By the way, which king of Internal Web Resources are in question of 
not being dereferencable?
