Why should another empty term end up in the RDF vocabulary?  (My view is that 
they shouldn't.)

Why shouldn't these terms go in some community-curated vocabulary, i.e., 
something like foaf, or some other kind of vocabulary, i.e., something like 
skos?  (My view is that they should go into some place like these.)
