Hi Joep,

That seems like a sensible policy! To implement that, you would only need a single entry in w3id for netbeheer/ and then you could build a directory structure for def/, doc/ etc. with individual .htaccess files within them. Or a single large .htaccess file at the top level netbeheer/ which would be more complex but perhaps easier to maintain with all the entries in one place.

By the way, the policy you’re working with seems similar to the Australian government URI policy which is described at http://www.linked.data.gov.au/governance. I’d be interested to see any Dutch policy documents for the national government uri strategy if you can find them please. I would like to compare them to ours.
