I'm surprised to hear that.

As I understand it, <doc#term> without 303 can't handle content  
negotiation.

If RDF is served at <doc>, then <doc#term> identifies whatever the  
RDF says about it (so it could be anything). If HTML is served at  
<doc>, then <doc#term> clearly identifies a section of an HTML  
document. To me, that seems like an unacceptable ambiguity. A 303  
from <doc> to <doc.rdf> and <doc.html> is needed to resolve this.

So, are you saying that content negotiation is not worth the trouble,  
or that the ambiguity doesn't matter?

Best,
Richard
