So why not have the spec mint a URI which identifies a resource
which represents *every* other resource (i.e. every resource
everywhere, that exists, has existed, or will exist)?  Then
you won't need targetResource at all, as it can be assumed
that its value will always be this URI.

Seriously, what's the value in doing what you and Mike describe,
over that?
