Yes, they are still 'landing pages' even if they are not HTML pages. Do you have an alternative term? We could have a general term for resources that describe other things and use 'landing page' just for when they are in HTML, I guess. I'm not sure 'description' is the right term to use though.

Yes, I think that's partly within the TODO section on hash URIs, 303s etc (4.2.1) and partly in 4.3 as mentioned to Ashok.

Thanks for the comments!
