Hi all

Seems to me a good illustration of peaceful coexistence of data models is
given by LoC MARC relators
http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/relators.html
Each of them is at the same type owl:ObjectProperty, skos:Concept,
mads:Topic ...
Parse what you like, ignore the rest ...

Have a great week-end

Bernard
