I share this concern.

Note that setting up content negotiation can be even harder than  
setting up 303 redirects, so this class of authors might be best  
advised to avoid both techniques and just call it <doc.rdf#term> and  
be done with it.

The biggest hurdle by far for this class of authors is perhaps RDF/ 
XML though.
