Currently, earl:subject is an "abstract" class. The EARL schema provides
three built-in sub-classes:

* WebContent
* Tool (aka AuthoringTool or EvaluationTool etc)
* UserAgent

This already gives us an idea if we are talking about a toaster or a
text file. Yet it is not enough to tell the difference between CSS or
Java for instance (or toaster and microwave).

How about we define some built-in content types that are properties for
earl:subject and some location mechanisms to go along with? Of course,
we need to leave room for developers to sub-class and extend the
vocabulary for domain specific pointers.

PS: I'm not sure why there is Tool and UserAgent rather than Software or
