The problem is one of trust; if you own http://example.com/~mike/a and I own http://example.com/~mark/b, you don't want my responses making asserting things about yours.

What's interesting is that there's talk in a few different places (mostly security communities, e.g., WEBSEC and the W3C) about policy frameworks; this may provide something to hang these sorts of semantics off of as well.
