Yes, every time I break my "Always cite your source"
rule[95], I lose. Every time.

I was going from memory, but I see that the RDF issues
list confirms...

Issue rdfms-empty-property-elements: The interpretation of empty
property elements is unclear.
http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfms-empty-property-elements

And I think it's reasonably clear in the syntax spec...
http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-syntax-grammar/#emptyPropertyElt

esp. test002 for this issue
