Right. For example I've subdivided the http://www.rddl.org/natures/  
document to define natures of specifications:

http://www.rddl.org/natures/specifications

is such a document that contains descriptions of rddl:natures such as:

http://www.rddl.org/natures/specifications#W3C-Recommendation
http://www.rddl.org/natures/specifications#OASIS

also note the use of rddl:purpose="http://www.w3.org/2002/07/ 
owl#subClassOf" to define natures that are subclasses of other  
natures. (this is intended to be an example of integrating RDDL  
natures and purposes with OWL ontologies, much along the lines of  
Norm's ontology)
