Re: Redefining “resource” (was: Re: Drop “g-boxes”, talk about “stateful resources”)

-2 on redefining 'Resource'.

The 1997 era specs tried using it in that way, but there has never
ever been a clear account of the class of things that are picked out
vs rejected. Deciding on which things are legally RESTy in this sense
is a huge exercise in ontologising, and not something that should be
baked into the core concepts. By contrast, "Resource is our word for
'thing'" is pretty straightforward to explain.

imho etc,
