Thinking more about our attempt to reconcile frad:Person and  
foaf:Person, I realize that I don't know how frad defines Person class  
in its model (and I don't have access to the documentation other than  
the registered properties in the metadata registry). From what I can  
glean from the frad terms in the metadata registry, the frad classes  
and subclasses are:

Bibliographic Entity
  - Person
  - Family
  - Corporate body
Controlled Access Point

I don't see an obvious connection between, for example, the Person and  
the Name or the Identifier. Does someone have a diagram they can  
contribute? (Gordon, you may have sent me one at some time, but I seem  
to have lost it. Sorry.)

I'm trying to get my head around what the "join" would be between frad  
and foaf; what would allow linking and what the link(s) would infer.  
And I must admit that from the above, the fact that Person is a  
subclass of Bibliographic Entity makes it somewhat puzzling to me.
