I suspect this is an area in which URIQA could be useful -- put a  
URIQA handler behind the ontology portion of the address space, and  
let it return useful RDF for the request URI.

This works best for resources without fragIDs, of course; for  
resources with fragIDs it might be good to supplement the CBD with  
"and any term with a fragment under this URI", though URIQA has  
workarounds in the spec[1].
