rdf:ID should be a NCName so this this still wrong.
http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-syntax-grammar/#rdf-id

And shouldn't we use rdf:about and not rdf:ID in property / class
declarations?

And is it necessary (or appropriate) to declare Dublin Core terms our
own schemas? dc:title is a property with no declared domain or range so
any class can have a dc:title by default.
Perhaps <owl:imports rdf:resource="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" />
would suffice?
