term LabelProperty

Rationale and Design Issues

Many RDF apps indicate which properties are labels via declaring a subproperty of rdfs:label

However, this is one of those constructs that takes RDF vocabs outside of the DL subsets of OWL.

Questions:

  • is this useful?
  • how should the LabelProperty class be defined in FOAF, to work best with OWL
  • is there any willingness to update application to test whether a property is in this class, instead of testing whether it is implied to be an rdfs:label?
  • Can we remove the subproperty link from foaf:name to rdfs:label?
