Well, I grant that the W3C (or anybody else) could publish a URI that meant
"the W3C". However, no one has done so AFAIK. Mere mortals who wish to
refer to the W3C, therefore, can either publish such a URI themselves,
or bootstrap from some existing URI associated with the W3C. Topic Maps
make it possible (not necessary) to do the latter.
I don't understand "I don't think ... is any more a trueness of the W3C ...".
