RDF itself provides this, by pointing to a resource. If you want to use  
dc:foo or some other form of identification there is nothing to stop you,  
but I don't think they should be mandatory.

I strongly object (and would make a formal objection) to a uri property as  
an identifier (other than r:resource) for the reasons outlined by Shadi. I  
suggets we do nothing, and encourage people to use rdf:resource

cheers
