  Except - do not use any uri that you might also want to make 
statements about in its own right, such as a home page.  Otherwise, you 
are back to the ambiguity as to whether the subject is the person or the 
page (or whatever).  Or be willing to distinguish between the two usages 
by context, but that makes it much harder to come up with a good domain 
or range for the relevant properties.

Cheers,
