Dear Renato:
In the current version, you propose that

"that some properties can be expressed as text literals or rdf:resource 

In Crete, we stressed the importance of staying within OWL DL or other 
subsets of OWL.

This requirement does not seem to be met by the current spec, because 
using an owl:ObjectProperty with a literal is afaik outside of OWL DL.

Also, the modeling of the work etc. types as

http://www.w3.org/2006/vcard/Work ( rdf:type owl:Class )

    * rdfs:subClassOf -- http://www.w3.org/2006/vcard/Address
    * rdfs:subClassOf -- http://www.w3.org/2006/vcard/Label
    * rdfs:subClassOf -- http://www.w3.org/2006/vcard/Tel

looks a bit strange to me, at least at first sight, because by that you 
are saying that any node that you define to be a wok phone number is at 
the same time an address and a label.

The same problem may be found for other such classes.

I would rather define a class v:ContactType, define instances thereof 
for "Work", "Home", etc., and define an owl:ObjectProperty hasContactType

Then, you can simply say

      <v:tel rdf:parseType="Resource">
        <rdf:value> +61 7 555 5555 </rdf:value>
