other rdf:nodeID name thoughts

I'm thinking of specifications built on top of RDF that may try to hide 
technical details of RDF from the user. rdf:about and rdf:reference did 
that somewhat by talking about relationships between *resources*, but 
the name "rdf:nodeID" presupposes a knowledge of some graphical 
representation of RDF---relationships between nodes in a graph.

Has anyone proposed other names for rdf:nodeID just to be user-friendly, 
such as one of the following?


The only one I really like is rdf:localID. The rest don't seem to work, 
but then rdf:nodeID doesn't seem quite right, either.
