If we (or anyone) attempts this, let's make sure to get good I18N 
review; I worry that the current usage of rdfs:label is biased towards
languages where markup isn't really needed in labels, and eg Japanese
might want Ruby markup in the labels (ie. use XML Literals). But I
have only a dim sense of the deeper issues here, to be frank.
