The vocabulary speficied in the document at http://www.w3.org/TR/HTTP-in-RDF/   may be of interest (I haven't looked properly).

The identification of resources on the Web by URI alone may not be sufficient, as other factors such as HTTP content negotiation might come into play. This issue is particularly significant for quality assurance testing, conformance claims, and reporting languages like the W3C Evaluation And Report Language (EARL). This document provides a representation of the HTTP vocabulary in RDF, to allow quality assurance tools to record the HTTP headers that have been exchanged between a client and a server. The RDF terms defined by this document represent the core HTTP specification defined by RFC 2616, as well as additional HTTP headers registered by IANA. These terms can also be used to record HTTPS exchanges."
