Kingsley, please try to provide short and concise arguments whenever you
disagree with something. I also have to say that having caught up with the
latest email threads, I find your tone very unprofessional. If there is an
argument you want to put forward, please make it short, concise and
on-topic. Don't spread it over lots of emails, as it becomes increasingly
difficult to keep track. This is just a friendly advice from someone who's
trying to keep up with lots of mailing lists.

Regarding the note in question, I still wholeheartedly believe that
newcomers will have a hard time understanding _why_ we use hash-based URIs.
They may not be interested in the subtleties of linked data, but they might
still want to offer WebIDs to their users.

I really wanted to keep the spec text simple, which is the main reason why
I added the note in the first place, as it avoids having a section just to
explain # URIs vs 303s.
