I have a vague recollection we'd decided to defer this one??  (i.e. that 
RDFS 1.0 would provide no such capability.)

Doesn't the model theory nail this down?  (If you say Property1 
rdfs:subClassOf Peoperty2, then one infers that Property1 and Property2 are 
[also] members of rdfs:Class, and that their class extensions are 
appropriately related.)

Seems like an editorial/publication detail to sort out.

Hmmm... editorial?

I don't know:  does anyone?

I think editorial matters are most efficiently dealt with by the 
corresponding editors, rather than group debate.  The group can then 
comment (or not) on the result.
