We're mincing words here. When the description of the resources implies a 
specific behavior from the agent we're effectively describing the agent 
too.

But as I said before I know you think the interaction is an integral part 
of the resource type and therefore the mere indication of the resource 
type in RDF is all one needs. We've heard others saying they don't see it 
that way though.

Rather than continuing to argue over who's right I'm proposing we accept 
that there are two ways to look at this and accommodate both ways. This 
may be seen as introducing some redundancy but that's often how we get 
something that works for everyone in the standards world.
