Nice to see more things progressing in this domain!

Like others said in another thread (and as can be expected, being a part of
the SchemaBibEx group), I'm glad to see this proposal moving forward.

(It would be nice to see the BIBO mappings from the proposal as well, both
in prose and in RDFS if possible.)

As you said, this is a good way to connect events to general (cultural)
domain descriptions.

Ah, this is interesting! A while ago I touched on the topic of a "missing"
Image base class for schema:Painting and schema:Photograph on the
SchemaBibEx list [1] (based on an exercise in marking up old images in my
web gallery using schema.org).

Is this class intended to be a base class for those image classes (and
perhaps schema:Movie)? And is there an ongoing proposal for this, or would
it make sense to work out additional details in the SchemaBibEx group? One
thing which doesn't seem entirely schema-esque about "Visual" is the level
of abstraction. Given what Guha recently explained in a NISO session [2]
about avoiding abstract classes like Agent, I would expect something like
schema:Image to be appear prior to this class.. Just a thought. (Even
BibFrame, which (arguably) aims for more granular and academic definitions
than schema.org, has a StillImage class [3], with nothing more abstract

(In any case, I did miss a foaf:Image equivalent in schema.org when doing
that gallery, as neither my old Amiga pics nor pencil drawings are
paintings. ;) Of course, I used foaf:Image, but don't really expect search
engines to grok that (yet..). So it would be great to see such a class,
whether named VisualArtwork or something more concrete.)
