Well... With all due respect, your argument regarding the previous
version of CC/PP is not correct. If there were errors in that version
that are revealed in this version only, then this is the way to do it.

I maintain that, in the present format, the specification may lead to
serious problems if CC/PP and UAProf documents are used within the same
application and using an off-the shelf RDF environment. Following the
text of the recommendation the user may expect these two resources to be
identical but the RDF environment will consider them as completely
disjoint. This may lead to interoperability problems.

However... I proposed to add rdfs:subClass (and/or owl:sameAs)
statements into the renewed CC/PP RDF Schema documents. Though may not
be fully perfect it does create the semantic link between those two
resources. Why is that a problem with the Working Group?
