Hmm, why not?
This happens all the time: usually, all terms from a single ontology 
resolve to the same document. Other examples:

http://g1o.net/
http://g1o.net/index.html

resolve to the same thing,

http://rdfs.org/sioc/ns
http://rdfs.org/sioc/ns.rdf

resolve to the same thing,

etc. etc. etc.

I think Sindice is doing well with this, not a problem IMO.
/toucan.rdf should be cached once /toucan is visited first (since the 
HTTP header says /toucan is actually represented in /toucan.rdf).


Cheers,
AZ.
