Because if you don't do either of a hash nor a 303, you're using the same URI to describe both the document and the person "joe" described by that document. In practice, this means that you'll probably have no way to refer to "the document which describes joe".

(Bear in mind the discussion revolves around the WebID URI, rather than the specific URI used on the wire in the request to the server, which will always be hashless)
