Can you guys try again?  I'm missing the point.  The RDDL idea is
you dereference a namespace URI to get a resource that contains
description of the namespace as a whole, plus descriptions of
useful resources each xlinked to the resource itself.  The 
linked-to resources can have any old kind of URI you want...
