I don't think it is naive at all.  In fact, your suggestion is similar to 
decoy's for layering the feature on top of the existing specs.  This is
what I will do in the near term; however, the real issue is not 
"can this be layered on top" but "is it so fundamental, it should be 
part of the base."  Also, if the knowledge representation is incorrect 
without it (due to what I call "implied subordination") then to be correct 
it should be part of rdfs.

Best wishes,
