Of course, one can use schema.org in such settings (and that should be possible), but we should also be very reluctant with incorporating "narrow" LOD into the fibre of schema.org.

"narrow LOD" is a good name for it. There's certainly work that can be
done around schema.org to improve its use; a particular area of mutual
concern here could be multi-page graphs. Schema.org graphs per-page
work pretty well, but joining them across a site is often tricky due
to casual URI usage. Finding a useful balance here between
webmaster-friendly pragmatism and usable site-wide graph data will be
important. Consider e.g. the kind of complex data that BBC programs or
MusicBrainz offer. It should be possible to expose that in schema.org
without fragmenting the graph. Most high profile tools currently focus
on per-page graphs.
