Hmmm... there are several definitions on what is 'homepge', actually. Well,
FOAF spec says 'as such one might look to a homepage for information on its
owner from its owner', indeed. Same as what you pointed out.

But if a homepage is the 'page' that contains information about a person or
organization etc., then the homepage of W3C is
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/ rather than http://www.w3.org/... right ? As
such, I have my personal information page in my site, so should I write as
bellow ?

[a foaf:Person; foaf:name "Masahide Kanzaki";
 foaf:homepage <http://www.kanzaki.com/info/who> ] .

I've thought common meaning of 'homepage' was the entry page of one's
website (or site itself). I have my website that contains documents on what
I'm doing, and whose entry page is http://www.kanzaki.com/, so I thought it
was my homepage.

A quick search shows that many people use foaf:homepage for their sites'
top page (as I do), while some others for their profile pages...

I'm really not sure..

KANZAKI, Masahide a.k.a. masaka
