But that doesn't mean that the representation you
get back is a *description* of the thing denoted.

The resource denoted could be, e.g., a particular
ontology, and the RDF/XML returned is an expression
of (representation of) that ontology, *not* a description
of that ontology.

Eh?

Content negotation *cannot* be used to reliably
accomplish what URIQA seeks to provide.

And when you want a description in N-Triples, XTM,
TriX, N3, etc. how will you ask for it, if conneg
is already (improperly) busy doing something else?
