When is an entity disjoint with information?

As I said, focus has moved to the use of the term "denotation" for 
clarity re. use of  URIs for documents and the things they describe -- 
as part of their structured content.

You have Web documents and document subjects, each can be denoted 
unambiguously via HTTP URIs thereby enabling the use *indirection* to 
map subject or document denotations  (names) to actual structured RDF 
model based content.
