Yeh, I didn't realize LJ added a new tag - I don't think it was there a year
ago when I was writing my foaf crawler.

As for Yandex's addition to FOAF, it's actually great that they finally
published the ontology. Russian is my native language, let me know if you'll
need help with some of the terms - ya:bio is free-text biography, they say
it's different from bio:olb because ya:bio does not define a formalized
format.
