Thanks for the pointer to any23.org

An issue I clearly see with URIs such as http://schema.org/Person/name is
that some properties are used by more than one class. So we'll have for
example http://schema.org/Movie/duration and
http://schema.org/Event/duration potentially misleading to the idea that
they are different properties with specific domains, although the definition
found for "duration" is exactly the same at both http://schema.org/Movie and
http://schema.org/Event : "The duration of the item (movie, audio recording,
event, etc.) in ISO 8601 date format <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_8601>."
So it's another argument for having this definition clearly published at a
single place, under http://schema.org/duration - with expected range
http://www.schema.org/Duration. (which BTW would lead to the side issue of
having a property and its range just differing by one character case, not a
good practice in my opinion).
