Wouldn't it make it easier to make a clear rule for this?  The convention
could be:

1. The RDF Resource (NOT all URIs) can always be separated into the
'model' and the 'name'.  

2. The name part will be the part after the last of a demarcation
character.  In order, look for '#', '/', ':' and ''.  (Is the empty URI
legal?)

3. The model will be the first part of the string including the
demarcation model.

4. The model represents a collection of statements from the authority
owning that part of the URI space.

5. Official statements about the URI will either be included in this model
or referenced from it (ie seeAlso).

6. If the URI is a property or a class, the model will include a schema or
refere to a schema, defining this resource.

7. Other models can extend a schema or say anything they like about a
resource.

8. The model may be retrivable, as specified by the protocol, but doesn't
have to be.
