More on distinguishing information resources from other resources

Hash: SHA1

Here are some clear positive examples of URIs which identify
information resources, in three modalities/media types:

_Beethoven's Symphony No. 6_:

_The Charge of the Light Brigade_:

The XML 1.0 Recommendation:

The W3C at 10 logo:

It's also easy to come up with URIs which don't identify an
information resource with a name that is immediately understandable,
but I don't _think_ there's any doubt that what they identify _is_
none-the-less an information resource in each case:

The Beethoven Experience web page:

A web page about writing about Tennyson's poetry:

A web page about Tufte's famous graph of Napolean's Russian campaign:

But I've struggled a bit to come up with good examples of real http:
URIs without fragment identifiers (all the ones above are real) which
do _not_ identify information resources.

The only example I've come up with so far are the ones that helped
re-open httpRange-14 [1]: [except that's a 404] [except that already involves
                                          a redirect, albeit a 302]

So I welcome additions to this list, that is, of real http: URIs
without fragids which evidently do _not_ identify information

And an argument to back up the claim that they don't.
