I completely agree there. In my example about a badly programmed LDPC I was just
trying to make clear in the negative what a well programmed LDPC was meant to do :-) 
In doing either of those I was just setting the context.

The problem I put forward initially was here
   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-ldp/2014Feb/0008.html

and that was related to paging. A well programmed LDP Client may need to 
page through all the pages before it could find out if the container was one that
was going to volunteer its user to the army. Without lossless paging this may be 
an impossible task. With Sandro's stable paging proposal one could require those
triples to appear in the first page. One could also place the ldp:SimpleContainer
as a rel=type in the header for simple pages.

yes. We just need to make sure that good programs can find out what
they are liable to in posting to a container that has paging. :-)
