Dear Andy,

I think that this query:
-------------------------------------------------------------
SPARQL 1.1:

PREFIX foaf:   <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/>

SELECT ( substr( str(?p), strlen(str(foaf:))+1 )
          AS ?property)

WHERE{
    ?x ?p  "Peter Goodguy".
}
-------------------------------------------------------------

can not fix the shema foaf, because it just calculate the length of foaf,
therefore if we have foaf2:
<http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.2/<http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/>>,
with the same length as foaf, then, the data in foaf2 can also be queried
out.

Am I right?

If I am right, do we have the method to fix the shema or propery/class?

Thank you!

Best regards,
Jitao
