A picture does speak a thousand words, as they say.

See: http://www.w3.org/2001/12/semweb-fin/timbl-1989-image.gif

The real "Resources" are clearly distinct from the Entities they describe.

In this original WWW design illustration, you can just put URLs atop 
each "Document" depiction. The put URI based Names atop each item 
"Described" by a "Document" (a type of Resource).
