I don't think so.

"Stuff" gives property/value information about something with the
(relative) URI "example.rdf#name1", not about the HTML document in
question.  In the HTML document you use "example.rdf#name1" where I
expect to find a URI for a (source of an) RDF graph, so taking the two
together, I would expect "Stuff" to be property/value information
about an RDF graph, and I would expect that graph to contain
information about the HTML page.  That is, Stuff ought to be a
description (reification) of the document metadata.  This is probably
not what you want.  :-)
