Please note that there is absolutely no rule by
standards that a website shall have "www." as
subdomain name.

Website may respond only with its domain name,
such as or with any subdomain as and need not have www at all.

So it is incorrest to say "it would be good if
links start with 'www'" -- for links which do not
have eventually www, if they have it alright, but
one shall have the link that distribution author
designates, and if it has no www, than no www
shall be used.

It is a host name, and that host name may be
there, may be not, it may be used as plain domain
name or with any host name.

So assumption that www exists is incorrect. One
must ask the website owner which hostname they
wish to use.
