Finding a SPARQL endpoint by an LOD URI?

Hi all,

I am wondering whether there is a way of finding a SPARQL endpoint for 
an LOD URI, i.e., a function f that behaves like
f(<http://dbpedia.org/resource/Darmstadt>) = <http://dbpedia.org/sparql>

TimBL's design issues document [1] says:
"To make the data be effectively linked, someone who only has the URI of 
something must be able to find their way the SPARQL endpoint.  [...] 
Vocabularies for doing this have not yet been standardized."

Is that still the state of affairs? Are there any practical workarounds?

Best,
Heiko
