That's what I am doing?

e.g. try

`curl -L -H "Accept: text/html" -v http://purl.uniprot.org/uniprot/P12345`
`curl -L -H "Accept: application/rdf+xml" -v 
http://purl.uniprot.org/uniprot/P12345`

...except that I redirect to:

http://beta.uniprot.org/uniprot/P12345 or
http://beta.uniprot.org/uniprot/P12345.rdf

(Don't quite see any benefit in having another set of redirectable 
identifiers for the actual representations.)
