eRDF (Ian Davis' pre-RDFa experiment in embedding RDF in HTML) does
precisely this: uses @id to set the subject for triples.

It's quite possibly the single most horrible feature of eRDF.

Just because you add id="heading_block" to a <div> element, odoesn't
mean you want the <h1 property="dc:title"> nested inside there to stop
referring to the document as a whole.
