If you need a URI for a schema.org property, compose it using
'http://schema.org/' + 'aggregateRating'.
It is not ideal that we have some cases where a class and property
name differ only in capitalization, and we should avoid that in
future. We do stick to the rule that an initial upper case is a type,
and an initial lowercase means a property, and both Microdata and RDFa
Lite have different notations for classes and properties, so this is
not technically ambiguous. But it can be confusing, I agree.
At some point it is reasonable to expect us to publish per-property
pages on schema.org too.
