As far as I am concerned, this is the main problem indeed. Although some 
of your examples shows that the behaviour of @resource does make 
people's head spin, and that is a problem by itself, the fact that @href 
would behave similarly to @resource (which I think is a given) and 
therefore unexpected triples may be generated has been my problem with 
this model all along.
