How do you draw the distinction between representation and resource? One man's meat is another man's poison. What is understood as a representation by X may be seen as a resource by Y. A web page could be a resource or a representation of a resource, depending upon the context in which is used. To a browser, every HTML document is a resource unto itself; the page represents nothing. Even Will Shakespeare could be seen as representation of a set of chromosomes. If you can't agree on where to draw the resource/representation dichotomy, how can you agree on an identifier scheme?
