In this example we want to represent the RDF statement:  <referrer URI> 
<dc:creator> <http://ben.adida.net>, right?

I have in mind something like:

<a href="http://ben.adida.net" rel="dc:creator">Ben Adida</a>

and the browser placing the rel information in the HTTP REFERRER header 
to pass it to the server.

The REFERRER header holds a URI and can therefore encode just about 
anything.  Right now it encodes the URI of the referring document (the 
RDF subject).  I propose allowing it to hold both the RDF subject and 
the RDF predicate.  That is, the referring URI and the relationship URI 
(dc:creator in this example).  There would be no change to the HTTP 
spec as long as it was encoded as a URI.
