Re: [dxwg] Profile negotiation [RPFN]

> Having multiple profiles available is realized already by just offering a version of the dataset that conforms to one profile under one URL and a version that applies to another under another URL. Sorry I can't recall where it was expressed, but the idea of one URL for multiple profiles came from someone else in the group (maybe Lars?).

Yes, that was me. Our use case is that we have two linked data serviced offering data about the same entities (e. g. persons and geographic entities) but using two different metadata profiles. The first one is our default one served through the domain, e. g. the other one is a beefed-up version also offering things like links to images at wikimedia commons, e. g. that is used to drive the entity pages in the German Digital Library at The point is that both representations are about the same entity, identified by and we want to serve both representations using the same URI. The solution to this would be profile negotiation.
