agreed that it's different for linked data, but on the web, having
identifiers that do not resolve is perfectly acceptable. that's why
hypermedia links are typed: you follow the ones where the type implies
they're dereferencable, and you only use them as identifiers where the
type implies they are identifiers only.

i am not sure if what roger suggests is to point out that this is what's
natural for the larger web and REST in general. i agree that we should be
careful to promote/show patterns that are not exactly the way how things
should be done in a certain context, but then again, if that demonstrates
how things are done in practice (even though it may not be the ideal way
of doing them), then there might be value in describing those examples as
