And you'd need the machinery for doing content negotiation, which
is exactly what I was talking about (though perhaps not writing
about clearly).  Instead of typologizing entities and requiring
content negotiation for URLs that really denote directories
(and conventionally resolve to something else) we could just
use precise URLs or URNs and make everything simpler - though
not backward compatible with the socat's use of SGML semantics
(which I think Paul feels to be a requirement even though we
may not have stated it as such, and I more or less agree -
I'm just exploring).
