I am not suggesting a change of RDF's media types. I am suggesting the 
creation of a media type specifically for RDF based Linked Data. Why? 
Because, RDF != Linked Data or RDF Linked Data. Thus, for those tools 
that believe RDF == RDF based Linked Data, existing RDF media types are 
fine. On the other hand, for those that think otherwise, there's also a 
solution in the form of a specific media type for RDF based Linked Data. 
The definition of this media type will spell out URI usage and 
behavioral expectations outlined TimBL's meme.

RDF enables the construction of RDF (model) based Linked Data that 
scales to the Web, subject to specific URI behavior i.e., indirection 
(explicitly via hashless HTTP URIs or implicitly via hash based HTTP 
URIs) aided denotation that binds URI referent to its description document.
