Talk:URI documentation protocol

The SWeb seems to be ticking along without any need for a special grounding mechanism. In practice, people manage to get their referents grounded well enough in practice, without needing to be told how to do it. Any general universal guidance on how to do it right is going to be wrong. So why not just shut up about it, and leave people to ground things in the way they prefer? The actual machinery of the SWeb operates independently of this discussion. Ontologies have the same entailments whether or not the terms are grounded.
