All,

I think the HTTP "From:" header [1] is now truly archaic circa. 2013. If 
the range of this particular predicate was a URI it would really aid our 
quest for a RWW.

Suggestion:

As part of our RWW bootstrap effort, we could consider an "X-From:" 
header that basically takes a URI or Literal value.

I think we can flesh this out across WebID and RWW via implementations 
before moving up to TAG and IETF.

Mark: what do you think, anyway ? :-)
