My main concern is that, a majority of resources are static and 
therefore are URL addressasble. Web servers and app servers don't help 
map static resources to resourceIDs.

We can encourage non-URL addressable resources to use the notion of 
resourceID, but it is somewhat inconvenient to map static resources to 
resourceIDs. There is some cost to managing resourceIDs (perhaps 
persistently), and this discourages producers from supporting the 
getResource operation.

I find that it is more natural for producers to use URLs for 
URL-adressable resources, and resourceIDs for other resources (such as 
some bank statement generated from user's query), and that the 
getResource should provide for both.
