Hi Steve,

Having ldp:Resource may be useful, for example, to describe the 
relationships between a container and a resource. For example, saying 
that the members of containers must be resources (i.e., that the range 
of a membership property must be a resource) or other things like that.

Or maybe someone wants in the future to extend the model saying 
something else about resources.

We may decide not to impose any restriction on the class ldp:Resource in 
this specification, but I see that it is useful to have that vocabulary 
term to facilitate reuse and avoid people coming up with new URIs for 
the class of resources.

I would use rdfs:isDefinedBy to say that the specification document 
defines the ontology:
