A suggestion:

Could the fundamental point expressed above be reflected as clearly as 
possible in schema.org documentation? Basically, that schema.org's prime 
focus is all about aiding structured data proliferation across the Web. 
Basically, its the top left circle in the venn diagram [1] I published a 
while back.

Structured Data is the key beachhead to everything else, and it doesn't 
need to be driven (or overwhelmed) by the entity relationship semantics 
precision of efforts such as RDF.
