Hello Carsten,

My understanding is that the organization ontology has different groups of elements to model different aspects 
(org structure, org history/provenance, location info, reporting structure).
The way you plan to do it, somehow mixes up the aspect of location with the aspect of organizational roles and org structure.
Maybe you could think of OrganizationalUnits rather than only Sites in your model. The Site class is meant for the location aspect only.
Why model organizational roles on the level of business card information (inside vcard namespace)?
The organization ontology has a neat set of primitives to model roles within the org namespace.

On the other hand, I understand that you are already happy with the solution you found :-)

Best regards, Marcel

I see. Then I will stick to the hasRelated property. And I think my solution then will look like:

$orgOrSite
    vcard:hasAddress $addr ;
    vcard:hasEmail $email1, $email2, $email3 ;
    vcard:hasTelephone $telephone1, $telephone2, $telephone3 .
    vcard:hasRelated $contact3 .

$addr
    vcard:hasRelated $email1, $email2, $telephone1, $telephone2, $contact1, $contact2 .

$email1
$telephone1
    vcard:hasRole $contact1 .

$email2
$telephone2
    vcard:hasRole $contact2 .

$email3
$telephone3
    vcard:hasRole $contact3 .

$contact1
    dc:description "contact1 info" ;
    vcard:role "role1" .

$contact2
    dc:description "contact2 info" .
    vcard:role "role2" . 

$contact3
    dc:description "contact3 info" .
    vcard:role "role3" .

Now all telephone numbers and email addresses can be queried directly for $orgOrSite and the hierarchy and the roles are also represented.

Cheers!

Carsten
