Re: How to avoid that collections "break" relationships

> In actuality, defining things like owl:sameAs is indeed extending RDF.  Defining things in terms of OWL connectives also goes beyond RDF. This is different from introducing domain predicates like foaf:friends.   (Yes, it is sometimes a bit hard to figure out which side of the line one is on.)

Thanks for clarifying, and this is indeed where we disagree.
For me, such a line does not exist, nor was it ever defined.
And even if there were, I don't see the need to draw it.

RDF is the framework, the interpretation is semantics.
All predicates have meaning associated with them,
none has “more” meaning than the other;
maybe some usually allow to infer more triples,
but that doesn't change the framework at all.
