I don't think it makes sense for the WG to define URIs for the different kinds of descriptions (CBD, SCBD, IFCBD, etc.). Assuming someone else defines the URIs, though, we could either define a specific property for this purpose or you could use sd:feature right now to declare support for that description type. I'm not sure if this would totally satisfy the use cases people are thinking of, but this is exactly the sort of thing that sd:feature is meant to allow.
