Perhaps you didn't read my post carefully. And then you snipped the relevant 

The URI http://kashori.com/ontology/MyURI (try it, it works) which has 33 
characters, identifies the resource 
http://kashori.com/JohnBlack/foaf.rdf#jpb, which has 41 characters, and is 
represented by the web page returned when http://kashori.com/ontology/MyURI 
is de-referenced. As far as I can tell, everything is strictly legal.

1. """Now my FOAF URI is this http://kashori.com/JohnBlack/foaf.rdf#jpb. As 
a URI,
it is an information resource, namely a string of characters conforming to

I have created a web page representation of this information resource at
http://kashori.com/ontology/MyURI according to standard REST web
architecture principles. As the owner of and therefore the authority about
the referent of that URI, I hereby proclaim that this web URI denotes my RDF
FOAF URI, http://kashori.com/JohnBlack/foaf.rdf#jpb. This uses web
technologies to identify that FOAF URI by another URI. In particular, as an
information resource, something that can be completely characterized by a
message, I can identify it directly with a 'slash' URI. I don't need a 303
or a 'hash' URI."""
