Unfortunately they do need to understand RDF for some of those - in 
particular rdfs:domain and rdfs:range have some surprising semantics 
that often confuse users. I would avoid those (and the RDF Shapes group 
may come up with cleaner alternatives). OTOH rdfs:label and comment are 
well-established.
