Hi Phil, Danbri,

Both foaf:Agent [2] and foaf:Organization [3] are marked unstable in the 
currently published FOAF Vocabulary Specification. ERT WG is requesting 
the FOAF folks (Danbri et al) to change the formal status of these terms 
if they deem this appropriate. It would help us to normatively reference 
(and depend!) on these terms in the EARL 1.0 Schema:
  - <http://www.w3.org/TR/EARL10-Schema/>

[2] <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/#term_Agent>
[3] <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/#term_Organization>


Regards,
   Shadi
