Thanks Dave,

wrt. Org - there is a strong correlation between the spec and the turtle 
file *if*, but only if, you consider the formal definitions in the spec. 
So if you look at http://www.w3.org/TR/vocab-org/#class-organization 
you'll see the (English) text exactly matches the rdfs:comment in the 
turtle file http://www.w3.org/ns/org.ttl. The latter does not, however, 
define the terms.

I've just uploaded the DCAT turtle file (http://www.w3.org/ns/dcat.ttl) 
which now has labels and comments in 5 languages, and the usage notes in 
4 of them (the usage notes are not available in Arabic). As a geek thing 
it's really cool to see Greek and Arabic alongside boring old Latin 
characters in the same file :-)

The discussion you're having with Coralie and Bert sounds interesting - 
I hope that comes to fruition in some way.

Cheers for now
