What this also means is that the registry (see also [1,2]) used for the microdata->RDF conversion at


should be extended for schema.org with:

'Class'    : { subPropertyOf: http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#Class }
'Property' : { subPropertyOf: http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#Property }

Correct? If so, I will add those.
