I personally strongly dislike multiword attributes. Unfortunately type,  
class and role are already taken. Here are some synonyms I could find:

	<div about"#jane" denotes="foaf:Person">
	<div about"#jane" depicts="foaf:Person">
	<div about"#jane" represents="foaf:Person">
	<div about"#jane" category="foaf:Person">
	<div about"#jane" ilk="foaf:Person">
	<div about"#jane" kind="foaf:Person">

Others?
