Couple of comments apparently addressed to me in:-

http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/2002/07/annotated-earl-examples
Annotated EARL examples

   "rdfs - is not actually used in this example. (@@SBP do we
   need to include it if it is not used?) "

Nope: you can take the xmlns:rdfs attribute out from the example. I must
have copied and pasted that bit of the file myself.

   "@@SBP how come we don't use foaf:name in this example?"

Because the domain of foaf:name is foaf:Person, according to the FOAF
schema [1]. I'd like to have a common property that we can use for both the
name of a person, and the name of a machine or service like the W3C
validator.

Hmm... actually, now that I review the FOAF page, there doesn't appear to
be any restriction on the domain of foaf:name. I am almost certain that
there used to be such a restriction, since I had to check it out for the
EARL schema a couple of months ago. Ah, here we go:-

[[[
 <rdf:Property rdf:about="http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/name"
 rdfs:label="name"
 rdfs:comment="the full name of a person">

 <rdfs:domain rdf:resource="http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Person" />
 <rdfs:range rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#Literal" />

 </rdf:Property>

Then again, no one ever said that FOAF was stable :-)

BTW, don't forgot to put your name on it if you're editing it! A CVS $Id$
or $Date$ would be cool too.
