Yeah... I've thought about doing something like this several times (this 
is by far not the only part of the spec with this issue -- the word 
"resource" is in the spec over a thousand times).

Fundamentally I'm not really sure what to do to define "resource" in a 
useful way here and elsewhere.

I've added a note before the navigation algorithm, though.
