Yes, and you have that right as an individual using the Web. Same 
applies to those that want to bookmark a Page about the Movie. Thus, the 
eternal challenge remains: how does a system inherently cater for 
natural variations inherent in individuals. This is where AWWW scores

Yes, and I may be interested in understanding the evolution of the page 
over the years. The Page is as valid a Data Object as its Subject 
Matter. This is the crux of the matter. The system has to handle our 
individuality, as per earlier comment.
