Subject: Resolution: ... where's "Drummond Reed" in the XRDS?

Now, you don't have to change what you're doing for this, but:

Exec Summary: why does the string "Drummond Reed" not occur in the  
=drummond XRDS?

Exec Lemma: service-independent descriptions (like the string  
"Drummond Reed") help guarantee persistence.

Exec Suggestion: would a prose description service endpoint (the  
reverse of http://thing-described-by.org/ ) help?

Exec Realisation: An XRI with users managing their own XRDS may not be  
compatible with archival notions of persistence.

"Electronic editors have to live in hope: hope that the long-awaited
standards for encoding texts for the computer will arrive; hope that  
will be workable; hope that software will appear to handle these texts;
hope that all the scholars of the world will have computers which can
drive the software (which does not yet exist) to handle the texts (which
have not yet been made) encoded in standard computer markup (which has  
yet been devised). To hope for all this requires a considerable belief  
the inevitability of progress and in the essential goodness of mankind."
