FWIW, I actually put (using an inferencer) rdfs:Resource on
everything in [1][2] because I use the fresnel vocabulary to
display things. This means I can make a generic lens like this,

:resourceLens a fresnel:Lens ;
    fresnel:purpose fresnel:defaultLens ;
    fresnel:classLensDomain rdfs:Resource ;
    fresnel:showProperties (
        rdf:type
        fresnel:allProperties
    ) .

to use as a default.
