The RDF Schema document provides intended meanings for some of the RDFS
vocabulary that is not supported by the RDF Semantics.  Vocabulary that
fits into this category includes rdfs:label and rdfs:comment.  The
distinction between these meanings and the meanings supported by the RDF
semantics, such as for rdfs:subClassOf, needs to be stated much more
clearly.  

This is particularly important because of the notion of social meaning in
RDF.  Without a clear distinction, the reader can be left with the
impression that there is no difference between social meaning and model
theory meaning.
