After all, we may be stepping on the area of FRBR, on what the URI of the 'work' is, etc. So we may decide to give up on that level of complication; I do not have a clear opinion at this moment I must admit.

I think so. The canonical (sic!) example is scholarly publishing, where a very precise reference is a must.

Hm. I *think* the latter. But I am not sure.

I would expect some sort of signatures mechanism coming to the fore in practice to ensure the integrity of publications. That certainly points to the second.

You mean links in the resources within a WP? My answer would be no. The resources, when put into a package, should be unchanged (with a possible exception for the manifest, maybe).
