Anyway, the neaty data: URI-scheme gives me a lot of idea !
Many people wondered how to give the URI of a statement. Why not

  data:text/rdf;base64,XXXX

where XXXX is the encoding of

  <rdf:Description rdf:about="S">
    <as:P rdf:resource="O">
  </rdf:Descrition>

(ommited namespace declaration for the sake of readability)

Of course, the encoding could be some other (better?) syntax, like the Strawman or whatever...


About Aaron's question, why not something like

  data:text/rdf-query;base64,YYYY

where YYYY encode the query in some dedicated language ?
