   I wanted to use such a term because the default case, when a module
does nothing special, is that a resource exists.  I think it's confusing
if that default case ("resource exists") maps to something in r->notes being
not defined (i.e., field does not exist in r->notes).  I personally think
it's less confusing if those few modules which need to signal that they're
dealing with a non-extant resource must set a flag to that effect.
