If these people have uniquely identifying properties you could use blank
nodes. And I really do mean uniquely identifying properties. 

Otherwise, unless your country provides unique identifiers for people
(mine does), consider using a time based or random UUID with the uuid:
scheme (which isn't IANA registered, but hey). Don't go making up some
ad-hoc scheme, unless you can demonstrate successive outputs will not
clash.

	What is the best way to describe a person that has no unique
URI? This person has no email address or web site of his own but works
for various organisation. Using the URL of one or the other of the
organisations is not acceptable.

	And related to this: has there been any attempt in creating a
“person URI”?
