A subject indicator is a resource (web page, mailbox, what have you)
that by convention refers to a certain concept or Real World object.
For example, my mailbox could be a SI for me, or yours for you.
A copy of the XML 1.0 Recommendation could be a SI for the
concept of XML 1.0.  The page http://www.w3c.org could be an SI for the W3C.

A published SI is one that's available to the general public,
having been promulgated by someone for the purpose.   For
example, http://www.iana.org/assignments/media-types/image/cgm
is a PSI for the MIME format image/cgm.
