Hi Stephen,

you may want to try querying the swig/rdfig archives[1].
this is a permathread with a handful of competing /
complementary approaches, but no standard. searching
for "header mget ddds" could be a good starting point.
(A newer option is SPARQL, although I don't think there
is already a proposal for service discovery.) However,
each approach could handle both hash and slash uris,
deciding on a URI generating pattern is orthogonal to
the problem of resource description discovery for a
given URI.
