httpRange-14 issue "Resolved"

The W3C Technical Architecture Group announced on Saturday that the issue httpRange-14 was "resolved" (sic). Very weird resolution indeed, which links the kind of resource an http URI identifies ("information resource" or "any resource") to the type of answer to a GET request (2xx, 303 or 4xx). On the TAG list and on his blog Jan Algermissen wonders about the impact of such a decision, listing a few examples of application, and concluding with a good question indeed.
Question: Who is going to mint and maintain all the URIs to talk about dogs?
