No, I'm not suggesting that *all* deferenceable RDF URIs should use t-d-b.org.  I'm just pointing out that it is an alternative if you cannot configure your own server to do 303 redirects.  Using it does require putting "http://t-d-b.org?" at the beginning of your URI, so if you do not want to do that then you should use a different approach.  To be clear, if you use this approach, then instead of writing a URI such as


you would write it as


and if that URI is dereferenced, the 303-redirect service will automatically return a 303 redirect to
