This is not a definition of "resource" that I am familiar with. RFC
2396 says (authoritatively);
"A resource can be anything that has identity."
The W3C has identity, as does its web page. So both are resources, and
can therefore be identified by URIs. Moreover, they can both be
identified by HTTP URIs, because HTTP semantics are also defined to
operate on anything with identity.
