Thanks for the resources.
I include here the recommended good practices from the W3C webpage:

> Good Practice

_Authorities MAY create HTTP URIs for non-information resources in 
addition to those for information resources.

If a URI identifies an information resource, the URI owner SHOULD 
provide representations of that resource. This is based on the 
available representation practice 3.5 in [AWWW]

If a URI identifies a non-information resource, the URI owner SHOULD 
provide an associated information resource which, when dereferenced, 
provides additional information about the original resource. In 
addition, the URI owner SHOULD make the URI of an associated 
information resource available using the mechanism based on returning 
an HTTP response code of 303 to the original request._

1. By reading this text, I understand that the recommendation is that 
also "non-information resources" SHOULD be dereferencable, even if 
they are not "directly" dereferencable using their URIs. I don't find 
an inconsistency with my change request.

2. I think that in the Annotations we mainly talk about the 
informational web resources, which actually MUST be dereferancable. Do
 we use non-informational resources in any of the provided examples? 
Which is the current ratio of "non-informational" vs "informational" 
resources in the WA examples?
