Makes sense to me. Good to see ongoing work on this stuff.


This is good news! The old model was just too impractical because of unnecessary complexity. I only have concerns about giving up skos:Concept as type of the primary entity. http://viaf.org/viaf/77390479 should be all of foaf:Person, rdaEnt:Person, and skos:Concept and skos:exactMatch is the right mapping property. I see no value in splitting Person-as-Person and Person-as-Concept - but other people would disagree.
