(dc:creator with a literal value is shorthand for saying the dc:creator
is an anonymous resource with a rdfs:label of the specified literal value.)
I find such a convenient rule a bit troubling for the same reason I find
the psuedocode rule for the equivalence of dc:creator with a literal
value and a foaf:maker with a foaf:name of the same literal spoken
mentioned above -- these rules aren't expressed in the relevant schemas.
I'm sure there are excellent reasons, though it feels unfortunate
to require software to special case such informal rules. Has anyone
created a RDF library, or schema (using OWL equivalence?) that attempts
to encapsulate such rules?
