link:moreData would be mostly for RDF crawlers, to make sure that a  
crawler can reach the complete dataset from any document.

In the context of D2R Server, we have one (usually small) RDF  
document for each resource. Each of those has a link:moreData pointer  
to a "navigation" document which allows the crawler to reach all  
other resources (possibly over multiple steps).

Would a simple "<http://.../moreDataDocument> a rdfs:Resource" in  
each document suffice? Maybe. I think it's a bit too weak. I think  
it's worth distinguishing between "Foo exists." and "By retrieving  
Foo, you may find other information that I thought is worth pointing  
to." But maybe you're right and it's unnecessary.
