I have an application of RDF which requires interchangeable, multilingual
labels and comments. Furthermore labels are reused across a number of
different classes and properties. Obviously I need to be able to separate
out the values of labels and comments and store them in another
rdf:resource. Consequently I find the restriction of range to literal for
these elements to be rather an obstacle. 

I am sure that others will encounter the same problem, so rather than have
lots of different implementations of label and comment, what about simply
allowing them to point to another rdf:resource?

All the best
