to avoid confusion, what's the problem of using rdfs:member to always
represent membership, ldp:content to always represent member content, and
then to distinguish between containment and aggregation simply by letting
the user decide whether they embed the content or not when creating new
members? as i've pointed out before, this would also simply deletion
semantics and generally make the model simpler, and more consistent.

cheers,
