If 'type' and 'class' are taken and unusable, ... then I'm liking  
'kind' (and 'typeof' is ok).

'kind' is a nice, generous, positive word :) I'm not sure it entirely  
fits here. But my intuitions are some what screwed up by too many  
years of RDF. Would be good to get input from un-polluted Web devs...
