We have created 3 terms for the PaySwarm vocabulary that we think may be
better off in the rdf or rdfs vocabulary. They have to do with
"resources" on the Web.

The first is the canonical "owner" of a resource on the Web. Keep in
mind that this is different from dc:creator and those types of
expressions. It could be used to establish the owner of a financial
account (that uses a web address), a public key that is published to the
Web, or a variety of other pieces of information that "belong" to an IRI
identifier (like a person's identifier).

The second and third are validity periods for particular pieces of
information - like when is an offer for a good or service valid from/to?
When was a home address valid from/to? When was a public key valid from/to?

When describing resources on the Web, these three items seem like they'd
be vital for establishing ownership and information validity periods.
Should they go in the RDF or RDFS vocabulary?
