RDF Issue rdfs-isDefinedBy-semantics




you raised an issue which was captured in



Applications cannot rely on the value of an rdfs:isDefinedBy property 
refering to an RDF schema. It is suggested that further sub properties of 
rdfs:isDefinedBy be defined, one of which is contrained to refer to a 
schema and the other is constrained to refer to a specification.

As recorded in


the RDFCore WG has decided to close this issue with the following resolution:

This property indicates a resource which contains information about the 
subject. Often, this property is used to indicate the source of the subject 
uriref, where its owner specifies its intended meaning. The subject node of 
this property can be any uriref, and the value may be any document or 
resource; the usage is not restricted to a particular form or schema

Please could you respond to this message, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org
