I'm curious to learn where the requirement that "Must not allow
addressing resources outside a widget" came from?  Can you point to a
precedent for such a restriction in any other protocol?  I remember
TimBL writing something to the effect of "Anywhere you can use a URI,
you can use any URI", possibly in his design issues, but I can't find
a reference right now.

I also don't understand what that bit about "run on the web" means in the intro.
