From the FOAF schema:
knows- A person known by this person (indicating some level of reciprocated
interaction between the parties). 

reciprocate
  1. To give or take mutually; interchange.
  2. To show, feel, or give in response or return.

So, foaf:knows is a symetric property.

In relationship, though, there are many non-symetric properties that are
subclasses of foaf:knows.  Should, for example, rel:knowsOf be a
superclass of foaf:knows?

Thanks,
Tim Nowaczyk
