[Ref-Links] RE: [Discuss-DOI] Open for Business

I don't get it. What makes one particular URI "the actual link" or "the
complete link"?

Can you provide an illustrative example?

Kind regards,
Peter Ring

Here's a forward take on DOI. Talks to the scope issue.

What do we get when a DOI is "resolved"? Right now we get  a URL. Looks
like a link. But it's not. It's just part of a link, a link component.
Where you end up after following (or traversing) a link. So, today content
providers are using DOI technology to effectively "publish" their link
targets (or destinations).

Now what if? What if instead of publishing just the link targets, we get to
"publish" complete links, ie we expose to public view the actual links.
