Meant to say:

The Web is evolving from an Information Space  where Linked Data
Containers Names and Addresses are indistinguishable (URI/URL can be
used interchangeably without confusion) to a Data Space where each
Object has a URI based ID (Name Ref) that resolves to the URL/Address *OF*
its Representation. In addition, Representation is Negotiable, so RDF
format fixation is inherently contradictory.
