I certainly support this idea. As a practical matter, the URL can
be selected and copied from the Goto: field of the browser.
In Netscape, you have to set Show Location in the Preferences.
We did think about having a separate page of discussion for each
paper. However, we decided to keep all the discussions on a single
page to help "cross-fertilisation" and "serendipity".
On a more practical point, the one technical aspect of the conference
largely beyond our direct control is the listserver and the "hypermail"
processor; hence we have decided to leave it largely untouched
