Hmm, looks like you and I are looking at this matter in very similar 
ways, except that I would like to see just a few terms ("predicates") 
standardized at the rdf level, while you offer a more elaborate schema 
that covers a wider range of relationships.  I think there is a real 
place for a schema like this, but I don't think it belongs in the basic 
rdf Rec per se.
