[rdfweb-dev] Extending a schema

I am working on a schema to extend the definition of "Property" in rdf.
The idea is that if I can supply some additional metadata, then I can
use that metadata to automatically create a form to create instances of
that schema. However, I am getting bogged down in some of the details.
So, as an example, I have a propert defined like this:
rdfs:comment="A longer name (2-3 words) for this property, for use in
Now, if I want to add that to the schems for some existing ontology, I
want to do something like this:
<ui:longname>Primary Email Address</ui:longname>
Now, that validates fine, but when I look at the graph I see an extra
duplicated "type" edge bewteen mbox and "property" Is that something I
should be worried about? I assume it would not be proper to take the
existing FOAF.rdfs and add my stuff inline with it.
Thanks for your help.
