Well, if you use the former, you get URIs like

~    http://purl.oclc.org/NET/nknouf/ns/bibtexsomething

for e.g. bibtex:something. That seems quite ugly to me -- do you want to
redirect all of these independently through PURL? If you use the latter,
you get URIs like

~    http://purl.oclc.org/NET/nknouf/ns/bibtex#something

which seem much nicer.
