????

ok, a real live example:

suppose I have an RDF Schema at http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/,
(that means: base URI = "http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/")
defining (in that document!):

<rdf:Description ID="title">
...
</rdf:Decsription>

The resulting URI for this property is
http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/title,
right?

If this is true and rdf:ID="..." is equivalent to rdf:about="#...", then
<rdf:Description about="#title"> should result in
http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/title too. 

Hm, am I missing something?

Regards,
Stefan
