Is it *always* the case that if an RDF model has a resource with a
property rdf:type whose value is foo then rather than:

<rdf:Description [attrs]>
    <rdf:type resoure="foo">
    [other properties]
</rdf:Description>

the syntax is:

<foo>
   [other properties]
</foo>

Example:

Rather than:

<rdf:Description >
    <rdf:type resoure="rdf:Bag">
    [other properties]
</rdf:Description>

the syntax is:

<rdf:Bag>
   [other properties]
</rdf:Bag>
