The POWDER W3C WG  has used several properties and classes of FOAF in
examples, and during the group's F2F in Boston in January, it was
resolved that the group prefers to continue to do so.
However, a concern was raised about the stability of FOAF. While FOAF is
widespread, the community has not clearly expressed a commitment to its
stability, it is felt.
Now, danbri blogged about exactly that , and the response from the
POWDER group, and others I believe, is "yes"; we would strongly welcome
that the community declares a commitment to keep some parts of the
vocabulary stable, depending on the needs of the FOAF community as well
as other standardisation efforts.
We have used stuff like foaf:Organisation and foaf:maker, but the POWDER
group could come up with a list of things we need, and I'd answer
danbri's call and volunteer to help with stabilising things.
Shall we get started?
