Identification of documents in Web applications

Some thoughts from the past:

? and # are symmetric -- ? is server-side # is client-side. One
of the inconsistencies in web-arch as defined is that it perhaps
fail to recognize this symmetry fully.

Secondly, I believe there is a continuum from documents to
applications, an application with 0 interactivity is perhaps a
document. Another way to look at this is:

"The Document Is The Interface"  but "The Interface Is Not  A
Document"  --- An interface is actually a collection of
documents, where each document snapshots a particular state in
the overall app;ication interaction.
