Re: ISSUE-54 (Entities as Triples): Translation to Triples missing for entities in RDF mapping

Rinke - good catch - these should be there.  Also, let's not forget  
that in OWL Full rdfs:class is also part of our language that needs  
to be handled
p.s. I was thinking of opening an issue to say we should work on a  
way to allow rdfs:class to be included in OWL DL - right now there  
are many documents on the Web (we've counted several thousand in some  
work we're doing not) which are OWL Full (either RDFS or RDFS with  
some Owl constructs) that become OWL DL if we replace the rdfs:class  
construct with owl:class - some of the current OWL tools do this  
automatically (even though it technically changes the semantics in a  
subtle way) others just barf -- would give us a lot more easy to  
process ontologies if we had a solution (or even a workaround) for this
