RE: Summary: Section 2: What does a URI identify?

While I agree that "home page" is an unfortunate and somewhat antiquated
appelation, and realize that the concept has no real, physical definition
within the context of W3C standards and protocols, isn't it still useful to
have a way of referring to some instance or element as the "preferred entry
point" into an information set, i.e., a "home page"?

Hear hear.  I remember back when I was in the web search engine
business having to break the news to frustrated management types
that "home page" is not actually something that the Web knows
about.  -Tim
