My issue with that text is that it suggests that Web protocols can't
provide representations of resources which are not "information
resources", which seems to beg the question in favour of the
range of http URIs being documents/ConceptualWorks.

I prefer TimBr's original proposal[1] as it seems to be a reasonable
compromise between the two positions, talking about the "information
resource" view, but qualifying it with the word "perceived".
