I would also suggest adding a "Describes" arrow/relation, pointing 
from the card on the left, to the person on the right.

Further, I think the card illustration on the left should include 
the most vital element of WebID -- i.e., the explicit statement 
that this document describes the entity denoted by the URI which
was dereferenced to get it -- i.e., its primaryTopic is 
<http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/card#i>...  which could
be illustrated by adding a single arrow/relationship, "describes", 
from "/People/Berners-Lee/card" to "<#i>".
