Re: Note on its:term [ISSUE-24]

I don't want to start a httpRange-14 war here, but this sounds a lot 
like the scenario of separating the term definition and its 
representation, as is the case done in semweb. For instance, when 
http://dbpedia.org/resource/Pizza redirects to 
http://dbpedia.org/page/Pizza or /image/Pizza, depending on what the 
user agent asks for?

Basically, this sort of recipe would keep the same ITS2.0 data 
categories and delegate the issue of resource representation negotiation 
to a protocol layer that is concerned about that.
