To do that you require a URI to name that representation. That will be a
distinct URI from the resource in question. How we decide to name
representations is a policy matter, and has nothing to do with RDF. RDF
will work fine with representations that are 'lifted' into resources.
That you have a naming explosion, or that thinking about a Web where
representations are resources might seem odd, is incidental to RDF.
