Well, with my proposal it would be up to the responding
agent if any.  If such an agent were cooperative it would
respond with the exact piece of data that was being asked. 
A question that asks for "who" is cooperatively responded to
by a name (or description of) a person.   Thing is, we have
yet to talk here about the discourse level of usage of RDF. 
I think a practical approach to asking and answering
questions in the open environment of a semantic web must
deal with the discourse level of dialogue.
