I also very much want to discuss the points in my posting of last night 
[1], highlights of which are:

* Use a document abstraction in Web apps when you can.

* When you do, provide first class URIs that can be emailed, linked, and 
accessed from non-Javascript clients.

* Put more long term emphasis on using "?" vs "#" syntax. For that reason, 
change the title of the HashInURI draft to something like: "Identification 
of resources in Web applications", or something else that's neutral with 
respect to syntactic choices.

BTW: I think the first two of these are pretty close to Good Practice Notes 
I'd advocate putting in your finding.

FYI: What I intend to do is schedule for tomorrow discussion specifically 
of !# (especially Jeni's note) and my posting. Then we'll get back to other 
issues raised by your draft on a subsequent call.  Thanks!
