FYI: interesting proposal about how we reference resources inside data packages using urls - frictionlessdata/specs#373 - comments wanted
The goal here is to have a URI that could point to a specific resource inside a datapackage.
We already have a standard way for identifying a datapackage: http://specs.frictionlessdata.io/data-package-identifier/.
This proposal suggests to add a means for referencing the data file contained inside the data package.
Implementation options (not mutually exclusive):
resourcesis an array, you can't reference a resource by its name - unless we start using stronger pointing mechanisms such as XPath (and we shouldn't...)
resource.nameis required and must be unique - so why you can't reference its by name?
