Now one can see the way in which the URIs work together, being both profile and resources udner the control of the user described by the profile, as does the foaf:knows link data graph. This give me a private forest concept, and it gives me a notion that a /protected/ (virtual) endpoint can induce someone to be challenged on opening an authentication guard at a protected resource, to show they are known.
