-1 to the definition of manifest.

I think that the whole point of a manifest is to organize
constituent resources together.  But the definition in the PWP
document says"to the proper management, rendering,
and so on".  Management may relate to "organize", but
I would like to use the word "organize" (or something better).
I do not want to mention "rendering", because
a stylesheet common to all primary resources is not a
manifest, in my opinion.

Makoto
