Best practises for using multiple schemes to describe resources


sorry if this is not the correct forum for this question.

We are describing resources by (almost randomly) picking suitable 
properties from various schemes, for example FOAF, Dublin Core, Nepomuk 
and Organization ontology.

If a scheme defines class for the property, should the resource which is 
being described be always defined as such?


?doc a ,
       dcterms:title "Some document title" , 93 ;

Is this good practise, or should the resource be also defined as 

?doc a ,
      dcterms:title "Some document title" , 93 ;

Reason I'm asking is while this is a short example, things can become 
complicated when more schemes are used. And the classes of various 
schemes don't always mean exactly the same thing.

Any thoughts or links to existing discussion would be appreciated.
