Fair enough.  But what is the URI that refers to the W3C, and how
do we know?  Topic maps let us create such URIs, and gives us a way
to determine their off-net referents.  So do RDF about-less descriptions.

I don't undersstand this.  Do HTTP semantics apply to URIs that do
not respond to the HTTP protocol?

To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all.  There
are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language
that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
