Imagine an RDFa document describing a person. The foaf:Document URI is <>
and the foaf:Person URI is <#person> because you want to be able to
distinguish between the two; also foaf:Document and foaf:Person are

<>        a foaf:Document .
<#person> a foaf:Person .
<> foaf:primaryTopic <#person> .

If the document is describing an online account, it might have
<>        a sioc:User .
<#person> foaf:account <>.

My concern is about the #person fragment with regard to the HTML document.
If the page is only about one person, there might not be a tag with
id="person" in the page. Is this a problem? Should I have a tag with such
id, or, on the contrary, should I avoid this as to ensure the resource being
described is not confused with the actual HTML tag contained in the page?
