In light of the httpRange-14 resolution, the slash solution is not 
totally trivial, since there is meant to be a 303 response in there 
somewhere ....

An http: URI is gettable. It always make sense to try and do a GET 
request on it. We do have to decide what happens. This is not a recent 
innovation, but inherent in using http: URIs. The GET request discards 
any fragment.

One option would be to 404 .... (not that I am proposing that, just 
giving background to the problem).

So there are two, related but separable problems:

a) what are convenient sets of files for different sorts of users, to 
use as wordnet in RDF & OWL?
b) what does a GET return on each of the wordnet URIs?

It would be possible to answer a) and to provide mechanisms such as zip 
downloads to implement a), and to answer b) in a fairly unrelated 
fashion. Not advocacy.
