rdfs:seeAlso via intermediary?

Hi,

does someone have an idea (or had a similar requirement) how to
tell an RDF parser (e.g. via rdfs:seeAlso) to issue a
proxy request for a given URL to a certain intermediary?

Suppose I have

<rdf:Description about="http://example.org/customer/165">
  <!-- ... stuff about cust. 165 ... -->
  <rdfs:seeAlso
rdf:resource="http://other.org/aboutservice?uri=http://example.org/customer/165"/>
</rdf:Description>

I am really not a fan of using URIs as parameter values, but instead would like to
use a proxy request for http://example.org/customer/165 but to http://other.org.

Something like

<rdf:Description about="http://example.org/customer/165">
  <!-- ... stuff about cust. 165 ... -->
  <rdfs:seeAlso rdf:resource="http://example.org/customer/165"
useProxy="http://other.org:8080" />
</rdf:Description>

I think this is a bit more natural than the former version, because the GET on
http://example.org/customer/165 returns in a sense a representation of the
identified resource.

Any thoughts or ideas?

Jan
