Agreed -- as vocabularies stand, URIs denote reponse points.

a vocabulary that allows one to state:

<http://web4.w3.org/> :mirrors <http://www.w3.org/>
<http://www.w3.org/> :hasRepresentation <blanknode>
<blanknode>	:mimeType	"text/html"
<blanknode>	:revision	"2"

might be able to let one infer enough information about the
representations at each responsepoint and their equivalence.  That's
useful, I think, and such statements should be very easy to make as a
bootstrap for the semantic web -- it will talk about existing resources
in a meaningful and less abstract but clearly defined way.
