RDFS uses a number of confusingly similar terms:

    "RDF schema" refers to a specific instance of an RDF vocabulary.
    "RDF Schema" refers to the RDFS spec.

Perhaps these terms should be clarified in a glossary?

In section 2, the spec uses the term "RDF schema machinery" as well as "RDF
Schema mechanism". Can someone clarify what these terms mean?
