I know, and I apologize. The RDF ontology has had so many revisions, I
was not suspecting it would still contain errors :-/

Done, and I'm happy with it :)

this is what really matters in the end, as this is where semweb agents
will ultimately download the ontology.

That makes sense. Thanks for taking care of this, and apologies again :-/
