+1 for upgrading the majority of these terms to stable. However, I would 
exclude the homepage relations (foaf:schoolHomepage and 
foaf:workplaceHomepage), because one would rather link a workplace 
and/or school resource today (which can even have a more detailed 
description), or?
Re. modelling the "like" relation, I would also suggest to have a look 
at the Association Ontology [1], whose approach was a bit different 
because it modelled the "like" relation from the object direction and 
which is a bit more verbose.
