I know it sounds stupid, but that hadn't actually occured to me. 

MGET is not only
- A mechanism for getting information about an HTTP URI
But also:
- A mechanism for accertaining *authoritative* information about an

Where authoritative means currently intended by the author - correct?

So when setting up a URI query facility for my terms, I should put
statements that I author and consider authoritative at the end of an
MGET query, and other arbitrary RDF about the URI (e.g. external
statements where the URI is the object, links to external queryably
sources, etc..), at the end of a GET 303-redirect.

Does this sound reasonable?
