Changing v:Population to v:value is not nice, as it would make a
rdfs:range axiom very hard to state.
The q:Population would only be shown if it is actually used, i.e. in
this case it wouldn't. Thanks for pointing this out.

I understand your point and will think about it.

I put them into a collapsible field to make them less prominent. This
makes the page a bit more readable. Thank you for the suggestion!

Thanks again for the time and the comments, very appreciated.
