What the URI says doesn't really matter. The moment a URI exists it 
identifies something. That's it. If the thing in question is a Web 
Resource, in the most basic scenario it is endowed with content that may 
or may note constitute representation for self, description of some 
other entity, or definition of some other entity. All we know is that 
URIs might resolve to content. We don't need anything else -- on a 
mandatory basis -- from the publisher of a URI.
