Most Web servers that can host an RDF document
will also be able to support conneg,
but yes, linking could be a simple alternative.

I don't think there it _needs_ to be like that.

But the AP can be represented in RDF etc,
so that's not a problem.

The most important thing is that it gets an identifier
that is independent of the concrete formats.

Bonus points if that identifier supports conneg,
but it can also just link to specifications.

I'm all for that idea,
but I'm not sure if it is realistic (unfortunately).

Best,
