Hi all,

According to my action item from today, which I reworded. This is also
related to ISSUE-17.

I would suggest that we use in all our RDF Schemas the ontology headers:

For instance, for EARL 1.0:

<owl:Ontology rdf:about="">
  <owl:versionInfo>v 1.0</owl:versionInfo>
  <rdfs:comment>Schema for the Evaluation and Report Language (EARL) 1.0
  <owl:imports rdf:resource="http://purl.org/dc/terms/"/>
  <!-- ... and all the imported namespaces here -->

Like the OWL spec recommends, I would like to suggest also to use the
xml:base attribute, pointing to our namespaces, e.g.:
