This might be an example of where incremental adoption has a place.
If you want to be able to just expose your existing data (layer LDP over 
what you have, very thin transform, etc), then here's how you do that ... 
If you want to also make your data generally composable (thicker 
transform) to take full advantage of this, then here's how you do that ... 
X'.  (e.g. require the 'extra' rdfs:members as Henry proposes).
Letting product owners invest incrementally to realize incremental 
benefits has been required for us to motivate those investments.  If the 
entry point is a (relatively) thick transform that requires more thought 
(oh noes!) it's harder to get attention from existing products for whom 
standards are a means to better serve their clients, not an end unto
