In anticipation of RDFa or Microdata based resource, we use a # 
terminated URI. Remember, we don't control the domains hosting these 
data sets, so we simply adopted # terminated URIs based Names to 
distinguish from Address of the actual Data (Resource) via usual Linked 
Data patterns (where Names deliver de-reference / indirection function 
and Addresses deliver address-of).

Yes, as per my comments above.

I once made a comment about an owl:shameAs pattern whereby you make pure 
Linked Data in one data space that includes owl:sameAs relations where 
the Object is really a suggestion/hint URI to the 3rd party data space.

First step is to start the conversation, it might so happen that 
http://schema.org/Person#this will resolve to a Microdata resource, in 
due course. If it doesn't, we'll pull the trigger on owl:shameAs :-)
