Actually, what Clark says here does not contradict what L. Daniel said.
L. Daniel said "Every Resource should be identified by a URL" -- he
did not say "one and only one URL"; therefore, his words did not say
injectivity was a requirement.  Hence, it is needless for Clark to say
that no one requires it.  There was no such claim.

Just a point of logic.
