That's pretty tantalizing.  If this information were present in the
Turtle response for the document URI without the extra parameter, and
if there were a FOAF+SSL -like solution (or is there one?) to the
problem of a unlimited number of clients fetching information about an
unlimited number of Facebook users via the Graph API and its OAuth,
this would surely be the world's largest linked FOAF data set.
