+1, Cory (for all the good it might do you).

http://www.rustprivacy.org/meta/citation/parseCitation.rdf (with XSD Validation) is a thinly disguised solution #2.  I simply do not believe it possible for Government work to address granularity and existence (discovery) as two separate issues although the separation may be just dandy for web surfing - on a serious, sophisticated level, of course ;)


I can imagine two conventions that could help solve this: 

1) That every resource should respond to a SPARQL endpoint.  This would
then allow you to query that one resource directly to subset the data
and/or to get the triple that points to metadata.

2) That a standard manipulation is done on a URI to get metadata about
resources, which would include the query point.  For example:
http://www.example.com/rdf/people.rfd#cory could have metadata at
http://www.example.com/rdf/metadata.rdf.  There are some existing
solutions that use this approach.

Can we set a "best practice" for open government data?  My preference
would be the first.  Thoughts?
