In my opinion hash URIs is an alternative that is easier to deploy:

We are using "one (optional) RWO per document" approach with "#this"
as fragment identifier:
Document URI: /container/item
RWO URI: /container/item#this

That way the RWO is not directly accessible over HTTP (the fragment
identifier is invisible to the server), but it still is identified and
described in the document.
