Re: ROR - Resources of a Resource

Hello Dom,

Interesting schema, I've been touching the same kind of 'problem' 
(describing parts of a website) but with the intent to use the 
description as a real internal sitemap for a website. HTTP requests 
would be looked up in this and the described resources would have other 
properties that define how the page would be rendered to HTML etc.

Anyway, I've taken a quick peek at your spec and one thing strikes me 
as odd; why do you define the type of the described resources as a 
literal? Why not make the those classes (like SiteMap, Menu, Contact, 
etc) _real_ rdfs classes, and define the type using rdf:type?

I see you mention the type literal being similar to rdf:type and seem 
to support both, but why not just use rdf:type? Also, how does the spec 
cope with rdf:lang in type literals?

I'm interested to hear what your reasons are. Regards,
