[foaf-dev] Time to make the foaf classes relate to Dublin Core classes?

Here's a version of what we might write out...

        xmlns:rdfs="http://www.w3.org/2000/01/rdf-schema#" >

<owl:Class rdf:about="http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/Agent"

 <owl:equivalentClass rdf:resource="http://purl.org/dc/terms/Agent"/>



it's a bit ugly 'cos I tried to make it RDFS and OWL happy, but you
get the idea.

I also wonder how well AgentClass maps to foaf:Group, ie.

Group - A class of Agents.
"The foaf:Group class represents a collection of individual agents
(and may itself play the role of a foaf:Agent, ie. something that can
perform actions)."

"A group of agents."
"Examples of Agent Class include groups seen as classes, such as
students, women, charities, lecturers."

Currently we don't say that Group is a subclass of class, which is how
AgentClass seems to work. But the basic idea is similar...
