URLs denote documents. The relation you seek has to be denotative in 

<> <#denotedBy> <someServerIssuedURL> .

Because <> a <#WebDocument> .

<#this> <#denotedBy> <#someURI> .

Because <#this> <#isNotA> <#WebDocument> .


<#you> <#denotedBy> <someServerIssuedURL#this>

Gets you what you seek, relation and denotation (#this turns a Doc HTTP 
URL into a generic HTTP URI) wise.

What I am trying to illustrate is the fundamental fact, in regards to 
AWWW, that:

1. An HTTP URL (a kind of HTTP URI) denotes a Document
2. A WebID (a kind of HTTP URI) denotes an Agent
3. An Agent and a Document are distinct entity types i.e., they are not 
the same thing in any shape or form
4. An HTTP URI can denote anything.

Denotation isn't some "Semantic Web" or "RDF" creation. It's a 
fundamental concept that enables us encode and decode information using 
language (computer or natural).
