mm one could be to return HTML + RDFa describing yourself. add a
triple saying http://iandavis.com/id/me

its up to clients to really care about the distinction, i personally
know of no useful clients for the web of data that will visibly
misbehave if a person is mistaken for a page.. so your you can certify
to your customer your solution works well with "any" client

if one will come up which operates usefully on both people and pages
and would benefit from making your distinction than those coding that
client will definitely learn about your
and support it.

how about this ? :-)

as an alternative the post i pointed you earlier (the one about 203
406) did actually contain an answer i believe.  406 is perfect IMO ..
I'd say a client which will care to make the distinction would learn
to support it as in my previous example.
