Hi Dave,

Thanks for the response, there's some good examples in there. I'm glad
that this thread is bearing fruit :)

I had a question about one aspect, please excuse the clipping:

Ed referred to "refactoring". So I'm curious about refactoring from a
single URI to two. Are developers necessarily stuffed, if they start
with one and later need two?

For example, what if I later changed the way I'm serving data to add a
Content-Location header (something that Ian has raised in the past,
and Michael has mentioned again recently) which points to the source
of the data being returned.

Within the returned data I can include statements about the document
at that URI referred to in the Content-Location header.

Doesn't that kind of refactoring help?

Presumably I could also just drop in a redirect and adopt the current
303 pattern without breaking anything?

Again, I'm probably missing something, but I'm happy to admit
ignorance if that draws out some useful discussion :)

Cheers,

L.
