Hi,

There are some suggestions for http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns# as follows.

1. xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
   xmlns:rdfs="http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#"
   xmlns:owl="http://www.w3.org/2002/07/owl#" 
   xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" 

maybe change to:
   xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/tr/rdf#"
   xmlns:rdfs="http://www.w3.org/tr/rdf-schema#"
   xmlns:owl="http://www.w3.org/tr/owl#"
   xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" 

So, these namespace will be stable relatively. And add dc:date or owl:versionInfo into the ontology.

2. The "Resource" had been defined by RDF Model and Sytax, not RDF Schema, So "Resource" should be rdf:Resource.
and the following statment should be appended in http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#.


<rdfs:Class rdf:ID="Resource"
  <rdfs:isDefinedBy rdf:Resource="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"/>
  <rdfs:label>Resource</rdfs:label>
  <rdfs:comment>The class resource, everything.</rdfs:comment>
</rdfs:Class>

3. The following statments should be appended in http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#.


<rdfs:Class rdf:ID="XMLLiteral"
  rdf:type rdf:Resource="http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-schema#Datatype"
  rdfs:comment="The class of XML literal values." />

<rdfs:Class rdf:ID="List"
  rdfs:comment="The class of RDF Lists." />

<rdfs:Class rdf:ID="nil"
  rdfs:comment="The empty list." />

<Property ID="first"
  rdfs:comment="The first item in the subject RDF list." />

<Property ID="rest"
  rdfs:comment="The rest of the subject RDF list after the first item." />

Perhaps, rdf:about, rdf:ID, rdf:RDF, rdf:Desciption should also be defined in http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#.
