Dear all,

The FOAF RDFS/OWL document currently includes the triple

 foaf:name rdfs:subPropertyOf rdfs:label .

This is one of several things that OWL DL oriented tools (eg.
http://www.mygrid.org.uk/OWL/Validator) don't seem to like, since it
mixes application schemas with the W3C builtins.

So for now, pure fact-finding. I would like to know if anyone is
actively using this triple, eg. for Linked Data browsers. If we can
avoid this degenerating into a thread about the merits or otherwise of
description logic, I would be hugely grateful.

So -

1. do you have code / applications that checks to see if a property is
"rdfs:subPropertyOf rdfs:label" ?
2. do you have any scope to change this behaviour (eg. it's a web
service under your control, rather than shipping desktop software )
3. would you consider checking for ?x rdf:type foaf:LabelProperty or
other idioms instead (or rather, as well).
4. would you object if the triple "foaf:name rdfs:subPropertyOf
rdfs:label " is removed from future version of the main FOAF RDFS/OWL
schema? (it could be linked elsewhere, mind)

Thanks in advance,

Dan
