I think this would be a bad idea, homepage is one of the human readable 
IFP's that exist, and the only one that many groups will have - they're 
easily noticeable when wrong, unlike sha1sum's etc.  It shouldn't matter 
what people have at their homepage, just that it is a homepage, and groups 
and individuals should not be forced to create an information page just so 
they can use homepage.

foaf:homepage should be as wide as possible to encompass as many different 
interpretations as possible, as long as they're all IFP's to the 
person/group it doesn't matter what's there.

both should be reasonable uses I think.
