Hi.

I'd like to provide more comments on Terms for describing people
(http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-vocab-people-20120405/).

In 4.6 Relating a person to online posts :

In the example, there's a link between a post and an author, which
mentions sioc:User.

As there is no other mention of sioc:User and of its links with
foaf:Person in this draft, I find this a bit misleading.

One may be lead to interpret this as a User being similar to a Person,
whereas, AFAIR, both can't be, and need to be interlinked using
foaf:account for instance.

Maybe this example should be fixed to add such a link explicitely, or
the text should explicitely explain / recommend the best practice to
distinguish persons from their account in SIOC sevices.

My 2 cents,

Best regards,
