A Trivial question.

I have noticed in Process.owl and also CongoProcess.owl that certain 
properties have been expressed as rdf:property rather than 
owl:DatatypeProperty or owl:ObjectProperty, though the range is not 
owl#Thing For e.g.

rdf:Property rdf:ID="locateBookOutput">
  <rdfs:subPropertyOf 
rdf:resource="http://www.daml.org/services/owl-s/0.9/Process.owl#output" />
  <rdfs:domain rdf:resource="#LocateBook" />
  <rdfs:range rdf:resource="#LocateBookOutput" />
  </rdf:Property>

and

- <rdf:Property rdf:ID="nameBookInCatalogue">
  <owl:domain rdf:resource="#BookInCatalogue" />
  <owl:range rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#string" />
  </rdf:Property>

Could there be a specific reason behind doing this or does it not matter?

Thanks,

Monika
