This thread, and the SKOS one before it, are fascinating exchanges with 
insightful analysis of the tension between a simple, largely 
unstructured, bottom-up schema, with the emergence of interest in more 
structured frameworks that can provide coherence and linkages into other 
actionable knowledge structures.

Is schema.org meant to be simply a deck of useful key-value 
specifications a la Wikipedia infoboxes or microformats? Or, is it meant 
to be a basis for more useful work down the line?

If the latter, I think there is much to be re-evaluated here going 
forward. This observation applies both to schema.org's mapping 
vocabulary as well as to its internal structure and consistency.

Thanks, Mike
