Kind of. Mostly it's that I'm using RAP to parse FOAF that might have 
any of 3 (or 4) namespaces where the person generating the FOAF meant 
the same thing. So I have to find a neat elegant way in the application 
of treating them the same.

In some ways, this is a special case because all I'm interested in is 
the existence of the namespace relation not exactly which relation there 
is. In RAP I'm looking for
Primary Person : Any relationship : A Person

Another way of doing this would be to use model->findVocabulary for each 
known relationship schema, append them together and then to do a find() 
for any triples found in that, that have the primary person as the 
subject. Then to get the predicate label.
