I guess no news is good news? 8-)

Some minor comments;

- "Resource Descriptions" principle.  Saying "important resources (for
example, Internet protocol parameters)" makes it sound like it's only
for *really* important resources.  I suggest removing the example.

- 2.1, second sentence.  "addressable by URI" seems like a remnant from
a previous edit, as it refers to the "shared information space" itself.

- 2.2.2, point 3 of list.  Missing "of" in "representation a resource".

- 2.2.2 point 3 of list.  "Section 17.4" refers to SVG 1.1's XLink
section.  SVG 1.0's is 17.1.

- 2.2.3, second last paragraph.  I'd like to expand the example, since
this is a very important point.  I suggest that paragraph say;

"HTTP [RFC2616] has been designed to help site managers maintain the
relationship between a URI and a resource.  For example, HTTP
redirection (via some of the 3xx response codes) permits servers to
tell clients about the new location of any resource which moved.
In addition, content negotiation also helps, as a site manager would
not be required to define new URIs for each new format that is
supported, as would be the case with protocols that don't support
content negotiation, such as FTP.

I'll send along more substantitive comments separately.  Though I've
only got one right now, I reserve the right to find more 8-).
