We had a similar discussion in August on #foaf (thanks Dave for the
great new search facility!)
And we decided to add regionDepicts to the foaf vocabulary. I can't
actually see it in the specification though:
I'm not sure what happened there...Dan?
I actually think depicts would be fine with a bit of tweaking.
