[rdfweb-dev] Question about bio schema

Well, actually this is more about RDF class design in general, but the
bio schema has a specific example.

The schema is here:

http://purl.org/vocab/bio/

and shows an example of:

<bio:event>
      <bio:Birth>
        <bio:date>1970-06-15</bio:date>
        <bio:place>Brentwood, Essex, United Kingdom</bio:place>
      </bio:Birth>
</bio:event>

However, since bio:Birth is a subclass of bio:event, why would you not
use this more simple as the following?


<bio:Birth>
        <bio:date>1970-06-15</bio:date>
        <bio:place>Brentwood, Essex, United Kingdom</bio:place>
</bio:Birth>
