Manu, why would you make a difference between @resource and @href? At
present, they are identical except for resource's higher priority (and
its usage of CURIE). I always found this a very nice symmetry...

For my understanding: if I put this issue of @resource aside, the only
difference between what we have now and what you propose is that
@instanceof applies to the subject no matter where it comes from (either
from an explicit @about or inherited from the parent). Is that correct?
