Hi Bernard
Many of the items on Bobs list we have done for good reason either for
specialisation of the class, or for contract binding.
For example pns:Person inherits from foaf:Person as we wanted to enhance the
parent class, and make relationships to other entities in the model,
similarly for Location, and Organization. But of course inference would
result in the foaf statements being published too.
Again the label / comment properties are subproperties of rdfs:label
specifically for contract binding reasons.

Thanks for pointing out the time namespace , I will fix it :)
Writh respect to tagging, we are aware of a number of public domain tagging
ontologies, but none of them have become the defacto tag ontology (as foaf
has in its domain). As one emerges then I imagine we would want to inherit
from it. But right now it didnt seem sensible.

I will have a look at the bio ontology for birth/death - I was not aware of
it.

best regards
Paul
