Part of the problem here is workflow. Is it an anonymous subproperty?
Or one whose URI is in the same doc as the message/doc? Or does the
authoring process include creating e.g. a purl-like URI on a more
stable service?

Interesting Q is how it looks in RDFa. In some ways things are easier
since we can mention the super-type alongside

Inside some markup describing Sandro, in RDFa 1.1 we might have <span
rel="foaf:phone uuid:1234123:homeFaxColor ...

...but we'd also need the info declaring the subproperty somewhere
too; either inline or in the Web.

I'm not comfortable with too much modeling leaking into
properties-of-properties, but it seems appealing to allow at least
attribute value pairs. Hard to know where to draw the line.
