I wonder if this could lead to other (smushing) problems. I like 
foaf:homepage as unambiguous property, but there may be multiple 
resources related to just one homepage if the domain is set to 
rdfs:Resource (e.g. a project's homepage being a group's homepage, too.
Or all the books at amazon that may not only share one homepage 
(amazon.com) but even multiple (one for each country?)). Maybe (and 
hopefully) there is a simple solution to that.
