I'm not sure why you think these triples are now obsolete, apart from a 
couple of triples referencing the no longer exiting personal profile 
documents they are still true. If they did assign http-URIs to Persons 
[1] the server response might now contradict the triples (not sure what 
a 404 response on a non-information response means, but a 200 response 
would contradict a triple saying that the resource is of type foaf:Person).


1. I recommend not assigning URIs to persons, not even to yourself, see 
my commento to TMBL's post:
