I think you missed or misunderstood my point here (I am know to have
clarity problems at the hours when I send most of my messages). I was
not suggesting an addition of foaf:Auction to foaf(note that there is
no : in my original message). Namespacing really isn't my issue - my
trust ontology, for example, extends foaf:Person at it's own URI. 

I intended this Auction point merely as a comment/addition to the
discussion on using foaf and online selling. It struck me as that was
really the topic of the thread, not necessarily the modification of
the foaf namespace....
