Two thoughts I've had in this area.

I wonder if we need a new property or a convention for seeAlso that is 
only used to point at FOAF files. The problem is that seeAlso is well 
entrenched and it's also generic to RDF and not just FOAF. Then it's 
quite hard to say what a "FOAF" file is. But it's still annoying as a 
scutter developer to get pointed at files that aren't even RDF. In the 
example above, we have to realistically include all the varieties of 
RSS. Which means that seeAlso would end up being used to point at at 
least some non-RDF.

The other thought is for sites that generate large quantities of FOAF 
(such as Ecademy). Would it be useful to produce a scutter plan for the 
whole site? How should I signpost it's existence?
