Eric,

Unless someone who knows more than me answers you differently, the answer is
no.  Frustrating isn't it?  I've set up a small group to look at a variety
of RDF issues and this is top of the list.  Current thinking (thanks to
others in this interest group's helpful suggestions) includes looking at
whether a P3P-style reference file might be useful or whether it would be
possible to identify a new URI type that matches URIs through Regular
Expressions.

The P3P route looks promising although it still falls short of what's
required if RDF is be useful as a rating and (child-protection) filtering
mechanism.
