I've been thinking about this question for a couple of days and have  
arrived at an answer that I'd like to share.

Imagine that the two representations (PNG and Turtle) did not have  
independent URIs. That is, the second and third URIs above do not  
exist and the representations are only available through conneg at  
the first URI. Would you, as the publisher, be happy with that? If  
so, then they are "equivalent enough".
