Michel,

In

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2000AprJun/0045.html

you raised an issue with the RDF Schema WD which was recorded in

   http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfs-subPropertyOf-semantics

as

[[[

The semantics of the subPropertyOf relationship is not clear with respect 
to the inheritance of domain and range constraints.
]]]

As recorded in

   http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/20010801-f2f/#decisions

the RDFCore WG has resolved

[[[
subProperties inherit conjunctively the domain and range of their 
superproperties
]]]

The RDFSchema editor has been actioned to update the text of the Schema 
specification to reflect this decision.

Please could you respond to this message, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org, 
indicating whether this is a satisfactory resolution of this issue.
