All,

Using the native MBZ URIs within the MBZ domain is the way forward. 
Naturally, the pages should also include RDFa and then they won't need 
to redirect anything. Basically, stick with HTML+RDFa as the default 
metadata representation served up from data space: musicbrainz.org . It 
is going to be much easier for User Agents to become RDFa aware than it 
would ever be for Web publishers to globally implement Content 
Negotiation based Identity dissambiguation.  Of course, this doesn't 
invalidate the deep utility of Content Negotiation -- in general --  it 
simply means that its relationship to Linked Data Web boostrap 
(activation threshold reduction) is inverse in nature :-)

You must be able to publish rich metadata in text form without 
possessing Web Server admin privileges, bottom line.

MBZ could be another powerful boostrap point for the Web of Linked Data.
