I respectfully disagree. Setting the type for resources where this is 
not necessary is an extra load on users where this does not add any 
relevant information. That section of the document has a number of 
examples where the type information is not present.

Implementers may find the type of the resources based on the 
properties that are used. In the RDF world, this is a fairly standard 
approach if the vocabulary clearly specifies the domain and/or the 
range or predicates. (There may be ambiguous cases where having the 
type information is good to have.) Having the vocabulary and its usage
 be simpler for users has a higher priority than saving some extra 
work for implementers...
