This brings to mind something which I have been struggling over ...

If one uses MGET (or "Accept: application/rdf+xml") to retrieve an RDF description of a URI for which there is also a representation available via GET (a URL), what is being described, the concept denoted by the URI, or the representation (such as an HTML page) returned when dereferencing the URI?

If the former, how does one make statements about the representation?  If the latter, how does one make statements about the concept?

Suppose I mint a URI to identify myself and put up an RDF description which is returned to an MGET or when application/xml+rdf is specified.  I then put up an image of myself which is returned to a normal GET.  How can I separately make statements about myself (type:Person, name:"Stephen") and about the image (type:Image, aspectRatio:"16:9", mediaType:"image/jpeg")?
