Ah, ok, I see what you were going for now, thanks.

I guess I'm a little uncomfortable with it though, because the example
(and by that I mean the first two paragraphs of 2.8), by excluding
mention of the pervasive run/cancel dialog, isn't realistic and so
users would have difficulty relating.

On balance, I think I like the draft better without that new section.
I think the authoritative metadata finding says what needs saying
about that scenario; the metadata-in-the-uri angle on it doesn't seem
to add much.  It could very well be that it's just that example that
I'm not relating to though, and another one might do a better job; not
