The http://purl.org/NET/marccodes/muscomp/sy.rdf example assumes OWL
Full. 

http://www.mygrid.org.uk/OWL/Validator

I think it would be better as OWL DL. This could be done by separating
the various types into separate identities using hash URIs. If anyone is
interested, I could amend the example to show how.

As a rule, I like using OWL DL better than OWL Full because my brain
doesn't fall out nearly as often.

Thanks, Ross. I looked at the RDA terms [1] and interestingly type of  
composition isn't one of the vocabularies that was defined in RDA. I  
don't know whether that was an oversight or not -- type of composition  
is included in the RDA rules, there's just no list to accompany it. So  
this one may end up doing double duty: MARC and RDA.
