I am very mildly uncomfortable tying up the interpretation of the
document too tightly to the transmission protocol. This is partly the
point of the range-14-esque,

    <finger://river.styx.org/ww>
    <finger://river.styx.org/ww.foaf>

It might be a problem if code that doesn't "check the HTTP headers" is
considered broken because more practically minded people might use USB
sticks instead of the finger protcol to transmit big blobs of RDF and
it should be perfectly adequate to embed all the necessary information
in the document itself.

Cheers,
