Thanks, I overlooked this one.

Regarding DCMI modeling, I still have problem to consider that a movie 
(dctype:MovingImage) is a subclass of an image (dctype:Image), even when 
stretching the definition of an image as dctype does. This is counter 
intuitive and going against what most other (media) ontologies do 
(ontology for media resources, schema.org, EBUCore, etc.).

Regarding schema.org, I just observe that Web Annotations plan already 
to re-use some of its terms.

Finally, we are talking about describing media resources, so why is the 
*W3C* ontology for Media Resources not the most natural candidate 
ontology to re-use?
Best regards.
