Is there anything wrong with creating individuals with multiple  
rdf:type declarations? Ontologies with such individuals seem to  
validate fine...

<rdf:Description rdf:about="#MacBookPro">
	<rdf:type rdf:resource="#Laptop" />
	<rdf:type rdf:resource="#MacintoshComputer" />
	<rdf:type rdf:resource="#i386Computer" />
</rdf:Description>

Can I be assured that "MacBookPro" will inherit all the properties of  
its three parent classes?
