Well, it's different. For example, in the document http://example.org/test
the first would be equivalent to:

<rdf:Description rdf:about="http://example.org/test" />

yours refers to:

<rdf:Description rdf:about="http://example.org/test#" />

which, according to RDF, is a completely different resource (unless of
course you define them to mean the same thing).
