cf. other discussion about RDF URI References and IRIs,
where a resource is given an IRI that is not a valid
URI as far as HTTP is concerned we can't dereference it
properly so we need some kind of document -> description
indirection... Though in general I think the best practice
is only to give resources IRIs that are also valid URIs...
