I don't like that very much.

A good RDF predicate is one that fits naturally into the following two
phrases:

	"has ..."
	"is ... of"

For example

	"has homepage"
	"is homepage of"

But consider:

	"has usesVocabulary"
	"is usesVocabulary of"

Anything wrong with <http://www.w3.org/ns/rdfa#vocab>? That way the
predicate matches the name of the attribute.
