Additionally, 4.1.8 and 4.1.9 cause a conflict and prevent the reuse of 
many ontologies from many domains:

"4.1.8 Predicate URIs used in LDPR representations should be HTTP URLs. 
These predicate URIs must identify LDPRs whose representations are 
retrievable."

This means LDPRs can only ever use predicates which have valid LDPRs - 
limiting to those that only use the datatypes defined in 4.1.9.
