Nope, no interest in the namespace name at all - I'm interested in
<http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#type> and hence I dereference
<http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns> and hope to be informed about
<http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#type>, preferably through a
fragment #type. I'm not interested in
<http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns> or
<http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#> per se, and the reason I said
that I don't like ending RDF namespaces with # is precisely that - if the
namespace was, for example <http://example.net/rdf/> then the uri to
dereference would be <http://example.net/rdf/type> - not the namespace uri at
