Hi group,

<http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-schema/#ch_domain>:
> Where a property P has more than one rdfs:domain property, then the
 > resources denoted by subjects of triples with predicate P are
 > instances of all the classes stated by the rdfs:domain properties.

So where I wrote in the schema for various header properties

   <rdfs:domain rdf:resource="&http-ns;Request"/>
   <rdfs:domain rdf:resource="&http-ns;Response"/>

it's plain rubbish, because when using e.g. an http:accept property in 
an http:Request, this would make the http:Request an http:Response 
additionally.

Instead I should create a class

<rdfs:Class rdf:about="&http-ns;HttpMessage">
   <rdfs:label xml:lang="en">HTTP Message</rdfs:label>
   <rdfs:comment xml:lang="en">An HTTP message</rdfs:comment>
   <owl:oneOf rdf:parseType="Collection">
     <owl:Thing rdf:about="&http-ns;Request"/>
     <owl:Thing rdf:about="&http-ns;Response"/>
   </owl:oneOf>
</rdfs:Class>

with

<rdfs:Class rdf:about="&http-ns;Request">
   ...
   <rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource="&http-ns;HttpMessage"/>
   ...
</rdfs:Class>

<rdfs:Class rdf:about="&http-ns;Response">
   ...
   <rdfs:subClassOf rdf:resource="&http-ns;HttpMessage"/>
   ...
</rdfs:Class>

and the use

   <rdfs:domain rdf:resource="&http-ns;HttpMessage"/>
