Mark Baker proposes RDF Schema have its own media type to indicate that 
RDFS inferences are necessary for proper understanding.

1. RDF triples are supposed to be separable -- the rest should make 
sense if any aren't understood. (This includes inferred triples, 
obviously.)

2. Even if this was a good idea, the media type way of doing it isn't 
scaleable. There are lots of different types of inferences.

For RDF Forms, you should probably just put RDFS inferences as a 
requirement in the spec.
