See my response to Rob.

Yes, exactly. The RDF Data Shapes WG may end up defining a mechanism to 
associate a resource with a shape but it may not, similar to how the XML 
Schema WG didn't want to define a way to associate an XML schema with an 
instance document, so we might want to look at what we think this could 
be. We'll coordinate with the RDF Data Shapes WG to ensure someone does it 
but not both groups. :-)
