Please note: http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc6415 .

This is an important note is about:
a method for locating host metadata as well as information about 
individual resources controlled by a given host.

This is another approach that reduces the nuanced laced tedium 
associated with publishing Linked Data. Basically, there is a dedicated 
metadata resource that includes information the aids user agents re. 
understanding URIs (via templates) as provided by a particular host of 

Re. Linked Data deployment think of this as the 3rd option alongside:

1. hash URIs -- carries implicit Name/Address disambiguation courtesy of 
fragment identifier semantics
2. slash URIs -- requiring explicit HTTP message exchange based 
Name/Address disambiguation
3. host metadata -- a dedicated resource that basically handles URI role 
comprehension en route to Name/Address disambiguation.

You can't deliver or effectively exploit Linked Data solutions without 
properly understanding Name/Address disambiguation.
