Hash URIs are encouraged when choosing a WebID since 303 redirects require
an extra HTTP request for an Agent to get from the
the WebID
All examples in the spec will use such hash URIs."


This has come up in some other threads.

Leaving the # vs slash "perma debate" aside, may I propose that this part
is removed.

While, I am in favour of the sentiment of using # URIs but I dont see any
evidence that this note will have the desired effect.  Why even mention
303s at all?  All the examples use # URIs so, imho, this point is not
really needed, and may add confusion to implementers.
