Do URIs really map to representations in time?

That would be called an 'event'.  No, that's 
not a new idea nor would I claim it as one. 
However, in circles where access has to be 
policy-constrained, the notion of 'event types' 
is very powerful as a means of contextualizing 
rights.  We need to take this discussion 
elsewhere, though.

Representations are also solid bits, and time
seems comparatively "solid" too.  What if a URI
is the name of a relation that maps from time
to representations?

The idea is not new.
