I use both pastProject and currentProject in my FOAF, and will miss
them if deprecated.

Well, that's a naming lesson. Though many 'present tense' properties,
e.g. homepage or mbox, are not suitable to describe old ones, but
that's an inherent problem of RDF itself...

Maybe people do not come up with the idea to use 'project' in their
profile, because there is no corresponding field in SNS ?
