Francois,

In

    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2000Apr/0067.html

you raised an issue which was captured in

   http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfs-constraining-containers

as

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

As recorded in

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2002Apr/0406.html

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 
indicating whether this is an acceptable resolution of this issue.
