Or, you could argue that RDF-Schema simply defines a different kind of
structure -- instead of saying what elements may contain, it says what
classes properties may appear in.  It's the same thing, then, but in a
more specific problem domain (the object world).

That said, I'm a big RDF-Schema fan -- it's quite readable, and I'm
finding some serious interest in both RDF and RDF-Schema out there in
the business world.  I'd very much like to see RDF-Schema go to REC,
even though it's missing some things I think I need.

This is the best place.  There's also an rdf-dev list, but nobody
posts to it.

All the best,
