I think it would be best to implement the mechanism described here:

This would mean:
<b00b07kw#episode> is the thing
<b00b07kw.rdf> is the RDF variant
<b00b07kw.html> is the HTML variant
<b00b07kw> is a generic, content-negotiated document; it serves the  
right variant directly, without any redirect, and gives the URI of the  
selected variant in the Content-Location header.

It appears that the HTML version provides much more information than  
the very brief RDF version, or am I just not finding most of the RDF?

Other minor things:

<bb0b07kw> should have a "Vary: Accept" header to indicate that the  
resource is subject to content negotiation; otherwise caches can  
become confused

A triple "<bb0b07kw> foaf:primaryTopic <bb0b07kw#episode>" would be  
very helpful for RDF browsers.
