I do agree this to certain extent. I do believe the URI owner's opinion 
should carry more weight on what the URI is.  It would make a better 
society we use a URI in a way that is compatible with the owner of 
resource URI.

But the issue at hand is if the URI owner (but not the resource owner) 
has *all* the information about the resource that the URI denotes.  I 
think not.  AWWW's definition for information resource and then 
httpRange-14 imply this.
