No, the URI identifies what people use it to identify. In this case,
the W3C. Invoking GET on that URI returns a hypermedia document, but
that's different than saying that the URI identifies the document. The
document is a representation of the identified resource.
w3.org doesn't return a Content-Location header on a GET to that URI,
meaning that they provide no URI for the document.
