My main point is that the theroretically nice abstractions that form the basis for the Linked Data Paradigm (entity vs. representation of a description etc.) are not necessary and not appropriate for schema.org.

As you know from www.productontology.org, I know quite exactly what I am talking of (it has all the best practices built in), but

- they were very complex to implement
- they are practically useless (99% of www.productontology.org users just need an URI for indicating a type of product)
- the HTTP content negotiation between the document URIs and the entity URIs alone consumes 98 % of all server resources and costs me ca. 1000 EUR / year for no actual benefit.

I am planning to flatten the implementation in www.productontology.org so that there will be just one URI for the page and the type entity, essentially removing all linked data stuff in the near future.

Best wishes / Mit freundlichen Grüßen
