In a sense we are now clearly unveiling a functional partition within 
the general scope of Linked Data Deployment i.e.,  the disambiguation of 
a Resource URI and the URI of its Metadata doc is distinct from the 
deployment of HTTP URIs published in line with the Linked Data meme.

Personally, I find the above extremely important re. overall Linked Data 
meme comprehension.

Juan/Tom: I assume Davids service will be added to an appropriate 
location within the <http://linkeddata.org> data space ?


As you can see we can sanely describe the Linked Data meme without 
wandering down the information resource and non information resource 
comprehension cul-de-sac. Ditto examples that inaccurately use "Document 
vs Real World Things" anecdotes,  when documents are themselves "Things" 
worthy of description via associated metadata.

Metadata has been with us for eons, so lets use it to bring brevity and 
broad comprehension to our messaging.

FWIW - binding Metadata docs to their subjects via HTTP  URIs is 
basically what the Linked Data meme fundamentally addresses in a novel way.
