Use FOAF or schema.org in examples?

I noticed that Manu and Dave have been replacing most uses of FOAF in the
examples with Schema.org. On one hand, I find that good since probably more
people know about schema.org than about FOAF. On the other hand I find it
strange to use IRIs which do not resolve to anything useful when being
dereferenced; in fact, you'll get a 404.

I thus wanted to hear opinions of other people in the group regarding what
we should use in our examples. Since we are talking about Linked Data and
have statements in the spec that IRIs SHOULD resolve to something useful I
think we should live what we preach and use FOAF instead.
