The semantics of this cert. element covers exactly what I need i.e., a place for URLs that resolve to resources bearing directed graphs where attribute=value or predicate=object pairs coalesce around identifiers for the cert. subject, as placed in SAN .

This reference (an Address) resolves to a profile resource bearing

Then you completely solve burden problem for publishers re. Linked Data 
publishing nuances that ultimately introduce control problems, as 
already demonstrated by Peter's experiments.
