you raised an issue which was captured in



Is it possible to constrain the members of a container to be of a given type?

As recorded in


the RDFCore WG resolved:

  o Expressing such a constraint is beyond the scope of RDFS. Such 
functionality belongs with more powerful ontology languages such as 
daml+oil and owl.

  o The WG notes that DAML+OIL can express this constraint as described here.

  o The WG closes this issue

Please could you respond to this message, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org
