What is the subject URI of a profile ?

Hello all,

I wonder how we provide a profile's subject URI, i.e. the value of the
'rdf:about' attribute of the top 'rdf:Description' element. For example, if
I want to define a profile for one of my browsers, what URI should be
chosen for the profile ?

Since we do not have a generic identifier to specify our agent or
environment (or even ourselves), it is not obvious which URI should be
taken. May I use my homepage URI + browser name ? (Oh, no.)  Or an empty
string as rdf:about="" might be possible, but how could it be interpreted
(in other words, what is the base URI of the profile which is not an Web
resource) ?  Or just use no 'rdf:about' attribute, leaving it as blank node

Draft examples show something 'rdf:about="http://example.com/MyProfile"',
but this does not help in finding a URI for an individual case, where a
unique identifier is required rather than generic class name.

Sorry if this is a past issue. However, I could not find any hint while
reading through the Last Call draft.

KANZAKI, Masahide
