Can you tell us, or point us to where it is told, 
what a 'conceptual resource' is? The phrase does 
not seem to occur anywhere else in the TAG issues 
list, and I have not seen it before. Is this a 
new kind of resource, or do y'all mean to refer 
to something that is not really a resource but 
might mistakenly be thought to be one?

I note that the only extant definition of 
'resource' describes it as a function from time 
to representations, so I presume that something 
that 'has different versions over time' can 
already be considered to be a resource. If this 
impression is mistaken, I would be grateful for 
correction on the matter.
