Basically we can't make it a property of either a foaf:Person or subclass.  
We have to have some container that holds the Person and the Tool and says  
that it covers the specific case of a user operating a tool.

It seems that we could do this in several ways - we could subclass  
Assertor, and make User with Tool, then have porperties of user (domain  
User with Tool, range foaf:Person) and tool (domain same, range  
earl:ToolG). We could also do this without the subclass I guess.
