Ian,

I appreciate the "start simple" strategy.  I hope the surrounding
context for the diagram will make it clear that while some basic
relationships are depicted, the "arity" of those relationships is not.
On the other hand, a diagram with one Resource, many URI
and many Representations would still be "pretty simple".

Other concepts, such as redirection, distributed containment,
etc., definitely deserve their own pictorial space.

Thanks,
Walden
