Michael,

We have:
1. Just use generic HTTP URIs in @hrefs i.e. don't cloak them with page 
specific URLs
2. <link/> within <head/>
3. RDFa (as per example above)
4. Content Negotiation .

#1 is the most important of all since we still see lots of *mashups* 
that source Linked Data oriented Generic HTTP URIs, create nice pretty 
presentations from the data object values, but completely cloak the 
source URIs. We need to encourage people to apply the "quote/reference 
your sources" practice to HTTP network (Intranets or Web) resource 
publishing i.e. keep source URIs in view of HTTP user agents using any 
of the methods above.

Kingsley
