That's completely fine, and in fact a good thing. Future versions should continue to support 
rdf:member on  containers as explained by ISSUE-73. It is a core feature of an LDP protocol
that one be able to find what resources were created by a container.

My compromise: change ldp:membershipXXX to ldp:relationXXX and 
accept ISSUE-73. Then we have something that works well with Atom,
that is RESTful, that is clear and easy to understand and that follows
HATEOS principles.

Getting this done, will help solve a whole bunch of issues, so we'll
move along a lot faster.
