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?
