I'm not a massive fan of the 303 but I do think some of the inconvenience problems go away (at least for consumers and publishers, if not for source developers) if you separate out the 303 nir uri > generic ir uri (which is not content negotiation) from the generic ir uri > ir representations (which is)

see mails passim :-)

Thanks - I had actually heard this one before but it wasn't on my
list. I'll add it.

I'm still having a hard time being persuaded by this - i.e. the
inconvenience of poor misspelling detection outweighing the
inconvenience of the 303 redirect. I don't deny that this is real, but
I still feel I'm being asked to accept the seriousness of the problem
on faith.. (Again, this could be mitigated in Javascript, if it were a
serious issue.) Is this really the reason that so many people have
decided against hash? Surely I'm missing something else...
