Okay, but the fact remains i.e., Github doesn't have any bearing on 
workability :-)

The beauty of open design, as exemplified by the Web, is that you can 
speak about concepts and specifications without mentioning specific 
applications. In short, not being able to do that is the first sign of 
"leaky abstraction" which ultimately means you are simply heading toward 
so kind of silo (overt or covert).

HTTP, URIs, and Relations provide all the foundation you need in regards 
to discussing any kind of solution that's based on AWWW .
