Further to your point:

The reason for singling out this smaller vocabulary is that this is 
the part of the RDF vocabulary to which semantic conditions attach 
that do not arise from the presence of triples in a graph. All the 
other 'axiomatic triples' need only be added to graphs which contain 
part of their vocabulary. So for example, an RDF interpretation of 
the graph containing the single triple
<ex:a> <ex:P> <ex:b> .
is required to satisfy the listed semantic constraints on 
rdf:Property and rdf:type, but not to satisfy any of the RDF 
axiomatic triples (since the graph does not use any of the RDF 

Hope this helps.
