[tdwg-content] resolvable URIs

Right now the DwC Terms RDF download at http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/rdf/dwcterms.rdf 
  sets the namespace URI to http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/ and doesn't  
seem to otherwise mention the download URI.

I may be missing something, but doesn't that mean that DwC Terms  
referenced in RDF documents using the canonical namespace URI (http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/ 
) can't be resolved?

I guess at present that doesn't matter too much as there isn't really  
anything in the DwC Terms ontology that would tell a client agent  
something about the term that it wouldn't already know. But it's maybe  
worth noting that that's different from other well-known vocabularies.  
For example, the canonical URI for DC Terms (http://purl.org/dc/ 
terms/) resolves to the RDF for the whole vocabulary.

(BTW I'm not sure this is the right list to post DwC questions/issues  
to - let me know if it's not and where to send instead)
