The last time I brought this up, Ian Davis replied that his version of  
FRBR is not being maintained (there have been changes to the IFLA FRBR  
model since then). We should be sure that we are using an up-to-date  
and maintained implementation of FRBR in RDF. Some could potentially  
take on responsibility vocab.org/frbr, but I don't know that anyone has.
