I'm not sure I see the problem here.  In principle, anything can have an identifier in the sense of `dct:identifier` - a book, or a metadata description of that book. The subject of an RDF statement is already an identifier (a URI), and RDF graph about the resource identified by that URI may not _need_ to have additional `dct:identifier` statements about that resource, but it could. Those identifiers would not need not to be URIs, but they identify the same resource as the subject of the triples.

In other words, the triple:
```
    ex:p1234 dct:identifier "p1234"
```
declares the string "p1234" to be an identifier for the resource identified by the URI `ex:p1234`.

Is there any disagreement about `dct:identifier` on this level?
