There's really only two patterns. The key question is, given a type URL and a local property name, how do you derive the full property URL?

1. The schema.org or general RDF style: {base}{typename} => {base}{propname}

http://schema.org/Person => http://schema.org/name
http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person => http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/name
http://rdfs.org/ns/void#Dataset => http://rdfs.org/ns/void#dataDump


2. The hash-property style: {base}{typename} => {base}{typename}#{propname}

http://ns.whatwg.org/work => http://ns.whatwg.org/work#license


For both cases there would have to be documentation that says, “a vocabulary can only be said to follow this pattern if no URL of such-and-such a shape is used for any other purpose except identifying the properties.”

Best,
Richard
