The relationship vocab is a bit broken in my opinion. For example the

"URI: http://purl.org/vocab/relationship/wouldLikeToKnow
A property representing a person whom this person would desire to know  
more closely. Having this property implies being afoaf:Person. Every  
value of this property is a foaf:Person. It is a sub-property of  
foaf:knows.
"

But if wouldLikeToKnow is a subproperty of foaf:knows, then the two  
have interacted allready. So should it should be named  
wouldLikeToKnowBetter really.


"knows of
URI: http://purl.org/vocab/relationship/knowsOf
A property representing a person who has come to be known to this  
person through their actions or position. Having this property implies  
being a foaf:Person. Every value of this property is a foaf:Person. It  
is a sub-property of foaf:knows."

if you know of someone according to the definition, then you don't  
foaf:know them. But it does make it a subproperty of foaf:knows.


I reported this a while ago.
