Hi Robert,

Double oops here - thanks for pointing out the problem.

Now I'm in a bit of a quandary as the error is really in the ICRA 
vocabulary file. The sz term, and a bunch of other 's' terms, ought to 
exist in the schema. The fact that they don't is an error on my part 
when I wrote that file in 2008 (I used to work for ICRA and began my 
involvement in the POWDER initiative while I was there). The problem is 
that I no longer work there and the ICRA system is effectively 
mothballed. Unless things have changed in recent months, which I very 
much doubt, there is no one at that organisation who would want to, 
still less be able to, fix this.

So perhaps we can change the POWDER Primer? That's possible although 
it's not as easy as it sounds since, like all documents in w3.org/TR 
space, changes involve publishing new versions or similarly open processes.

I don't like the fact that there is a mismatch between the POWDER Primer 
and the RDF schema it refers to and will do what I can to correct it - 
but that might take a while. If this presents you with a problem, please 
let me know and I'll act more quickly!

Meanwhile, I can only apologise for my general incompetence and thank 
you again for pointing out the error.
