Hopefully we all agree that this is far from a rare case. The more 
general a vocabulary (e.g. DCTerms) more likely it is to have a variety 
of uses.

Now the question is: do the solutions being suggested allow one to have 

x dcterms:subject "A string"
x dcterms:subject http://example.com/subject1

in the same graph, both valid?


p.s. Stats on vocab use on open web at http://lov.okfn.org/dataset/lov 
show that DCTerms is still by far the most used, DCe (the original DC 
set with no ranges defined) close behind, but schema.org coming up.
