I agree with Tim and Roy on the range of HTTP but I do still think that
there is a problem worth solving.

Sometimes you really do want to make an assertion about a representation
of a resource. Mark Baker says to use Content-Location but I think there
needs to be a totally declarative way for RDF to say: "this is a
statement about the resource" and "this is a statement about the HTML
representation" and even "this is a statement about the thirteen
character in the HTML representation." If we standardized that then I
think that much of this debate would go away.
