Dear Group,

The Software class is designed to be generic and stand-alone. For this reason it is not a subclass of the (currently not stable) FOAF Agent class. However, there is a slight benefit of making it such a subclass so that all SingleAssertor instances would effectively be Agent types (and thus reusable in FOAF applications).

How much of a benefit is it, versus how much stability impact is there?

Regards,
 Shadi
