Interpreting RDF as representation of a resource?

if one receives some RDF in response to an HTTP GET request to
an HTTP resource, the RDF can be interpreted as a representation of
the particlurar resource.

What about the other way round?

Suppose I am sending some RDF via HTTP POST to some processing resource
(e.g. a store)

POST /foo/MyStore HTTP/1.0
Content-Type: application/rdf+xml

<RDF body 
goes here>

Is there any way for the processing resource to interprete the received
RDF as a representation of a resource of a certain *type*?
(E.g. to store the data in the right table if the store is an HTTP wrapped
RDBMS or further dispatching based on the type)

Maybe that sounds awkward, but I'd be thankful for any thoughts.
