Well, we can't have it both ways.

Either we want everything of interest to have HTTP URIs.

Or we want all HTTP URIs to de-reference usefully forever.

But we won't easily get eternally-useful http URIs for everything useful 
that has ever been plugged into the 'net.

Anyone building systems that assume otherwise is building something 
rather fragile. There are a *lot* of data objects in secondlife...

cheers,
