That's essentially how you would express "application profiles" or
similar in RDF, yes. And that is similar on some abstract level to the
technique used in the experimental systems I've seen.
It's just that this is not part of what RDF schema talks about. So RDF
schemas cannot itself describe records. It *can* describe the properties
used to describe records (like you just did: "there is a class...."), of
course. But that's another meta-level :-) RDFS only describes the
properties and classes in themselves.
Sorry for this confused mail!
