The RDFCore WG has considered your comment and resolved not to accept it:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2003Mar/0124.html

[[
   the use of a container membership property or rdfs:member in a triple
   should not be taken as a claim that the subject of the triple is a
   container.
]]

The reasons for this decision are that there is currently no 
requirement that the ordinal properties only apply to containers and 
no value was seen in making such a restriction in RDF.  The ordinal 
properties may be useful for other purposes than indicating container 
membership.

Please reply to this message, copy www-rdf-comments@w3.org indicating 
whether this decision is acceptable.

Pat Hayes
