Maybe I'm missing something, but looking at this and some ensuing messages, you 
seem to be saying that URIs without fragments are not used as types in RDF.  I 
think this isn't true.  There is tendency towards using fragment identifiers on 
newly designed vocabularies, but many early vocabularies do use type URIs 
without fragment identifiers.  FOAF Agent (http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Agent) is 
an example.
