> Before the spec dives into any details about how things are done specifically in RDF or with HTTP, there should be a section in the spec that clearly describes the model that LDP is about, both in terms of fundamental resources, and interactions with these. http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ldp-wg/2012Nov/0127.html was an attempt to take what RFC 5023 is doing and summarize it. Maybe we are not making the same design decisions, but we should have a clear model of what it is we are designing, and a good description of that model. Personally, I think AtomPub could have done a better way of describing their model, but there are many useful things you can read about without having to read anything about XML or HTTP.

I refer to what you describe as a conceptual overview or guide.
