The triple you are trying to render is
http://sws.geonames.org/**2637142/ <http://sws.geonames.org/2637142/>
 meteo:forecastPage
http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/**2637142<http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2637142>
 right?

Doesn't the @about attribute cover this?


http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-rdfa-primer/
"RDFa provides @about, an attribute for specifying the exact URL to which
the contained RDFa markup applies:"

   <div about="/alice/posts/trouble_with_bob">
      <h2 property="dc:title">The trouble with Bob</h2>
      <h3 property="dc:creator">Alice</h3>
      ...
   </div>
