To give an example, FOAF defines user friendly labels in rdfs:label. Couple
of examples:

foaf:OnlineGamingAccount a rdfs:Class;
   rdfs:label "Online Gaming Account";
   rdfs:comment "An online gaming account.";

foaf:givenName a rdf:Property;
   rdfs:label "Given name";
   rdfs:comment "The given name of some person.";
