Hi Nick:

Just for reference - I use non-versioned artifact referenced rather 
frequently.  Typically I'll create a symlink to a versioned artifact.  
The main benefit is when end-users are deploying artifacts and your 
giving them a URL. From my point of view is simply more friendly to make 
this optional - and I think more practical in the long term.



BTW - I've sorted out how he can deal with meta resolution without 
impacting the spec - thanks to Noel's links re. http which lead to some 
learning about content negotiation and with some assisstance from Erik 
Abele from infrastructure, I managed to get in place a test case that 
allows me to pull down artifact metadata by requesting a text/x-meta 
mime type.
