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

>From the human definitions, it seems like Agent/Agent and
AgentClass/Group are equivalents.

But it also seems like dcterms is a bit broken, having AgentClass as
rdfs:Class and rdfs:subClassOf rdfs:Class. This definitely makes the
vocab OWL Full, but I suspect it may also lead to
unintended/undesirable inferences.

Agent and AgentClass are used elsewhere - e.g. audience range
AgentClass, and note that :

    a    dcterms:AgentClass, s:Class .

Seems like a simple statement like "Fred is doing the class DC101"
would produce some very twisty RDF.

I'm on the wrong machine right now, but it will be interesting to see
what cwm and/or Pellet make of all this.
