Sergey,

yes, that ontology is far from perfect (and that is an understatement). 
First of all, as you say, it was really done for W3C stuff but, beyond 
that, it is fairly old, it was done before the sudden blossoming of 
various vocabularies out there (eg, it still uses some vocabularies for 
persons that come before foaf really came to the fore).

As Richard said, you should try to reuse as much as you can from DC, 
foaf, etc. I would definitely use the January 2008 version of the DC 
terms, b.t.w.:

http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/

DCMI has cleaned up lots of things. You may need only a few additional 
terms.

But: please, when done, publish the ontology! We need it:-)

Cheers

ivan
