Should the domain of rdfs:member be rdfs:Container?

According to the latest RDF schema document, the domain of the 
rdfs:member property (which is inherited to all rdf:_nnn properties) is class rdfs:Container.

However, it has been mentioned many times that rdf:_nnn properties can 
be "attached" to any resource, not only members of the rdfs:Container class.

Furthermore, many test-cases concerning the rdf-containers-syntax-vs-schema issue
demonstrate the above fact, that rdf:_nnn properties are attached to any resource.

I believe that this is contradictory and that it should be clarified.
