I am very concerned where this is headed. RDF* should not depend in any 
form on RDFS or OWL or anything similar. This introduces unnecessary 
complications. All we need is RDF, i.e. triples, graphs etc.

If some here want to work on using RDF* for RDFS/OWL, they could spawn 
off another sub-specification such as RDFS* or OWL*.
