I have considered this syntax however, there is the requirement that
contributors of different types still need to be listed in some order
hence my syntax. For some reason using rdf:Resource parses with both the
W3C RDF Validators and the SWI-Prolog RDF Validator however incorrect it
is which has confused me.  

Perhaps I am trying to do too much with RDF? I need to say in the
simplest way possible that there is a list of contributors:

1 marcrel:aut #XYZ
2 marcrel:ill #ABC 

such that they point to a foaf:Person.

Can someone help me out?  With the deadline looming I really would need
to fix this in 24 hours.

Many thanks
