I control neither schema.org nor w3.org, so by that logic using either is a terrible idea.

I have some news for you. May I direct your attention to
http://schema.org/Property
http://schema.org/Class
http://schema.org/domainIncludes
http://schema.org/rangeIncludes
http://schema.org/sameAs
http://schema.org/additionalType

That's a pretty good start and I'd like to see more.

W3C does a fine job *holding* namespaces for RDF fundamentals. But that's not enough. W3C does a terrible job at removing obstacles to adoption that were designed into these namespaces in the distant past.

Best,
Richard
