With the suggested RDF API, the model URI would be a MD5 digest, but the
model URL would be the place there you can get it.

To minimize confusion about what the URI denotes, the person URI should
not be a URL leading to a document. All URIs leading to a document would
be seen as the URI of that document, rather than the URI for something
in "the real world".
