Thanks for good job, Dan. I updated Japanese introduction page[1] accordingly.

I found some points to be checked in the schema:

- foaf:Person is not defined as subClassOf foaf:Agent (it should be).
- foaf:family_name has redundant domain
- foaf:myersBriggs is defined as ObjectProperty, but seems DatatypeProperty.
- foaf:isPrimaryTopicOf does not have type ObjectProperty (it's OK, but
better to align with other property descriptions)

I think vs:term_status of major terms should be 'stable' rather than
everlasting 'testing', e.g. knows, interest, depiction, weblog, nick,
topic, page, etc. (only Peson, mbox and homepage are marked 'stable' at
this moment)

btw. I'm not sure when linkedWith was dropped from the spec...
