HI do you mean by hosting and exposing directly static RDFs?
In principles it's possible, but i think a minimal linked data server is
required at least to take care of url normalization, checking etc. What i
mean is that using redirect seems to me a little tricky, even if you plan
to use only a small amount of static RDF data.
