I was wondering about maker and made relating to topic. So would you
like to see us routinely putting
  <foaf:page resource="" />
against the main foaf:Person in the typical one person-one file foaf.

Where there are two inverse properties eg topic/page maker/made how do
you choose between creating a Document just for these properties and
putting the other property against the Person?
