Gordon, thanks for the update. I did a comparison of 3 FRBR-like 
attempts, looking just at the classes:

http://kcoyle.blogspot.com/2007/12/interpretations-of-frbr-classes.html

The FRBR in RDF created some "super-classes" that are interesting.

Yes, this would be a good next step.

rather than RDF properties. We have chosen a preferred label for the 
concept

behind the relationship (e.g. "Embodiment" rather than the reciprocal

pair "is-embodied-as/has-embodiment") with the idea that the reciprocation

is better handled in OWL.

Where I am unsure about SKOS is that it appears to be based on the 
definition of concepts. FRBR (and anything we build on it) will need to 
go beyond this, to defining relationships between things, as well as 
actions on things. I don't know if SKOS will handle that.

Working Group on the Future of Bibliographic Control

If you mean the most recent work, no, it wasn't announced in time for 
that report. Ditto the recent RDA announcement about changing the 
structure of RDA -- that was announced the same day that the draft 
report was presented.

No, you aren't. So it would be great if you would post a comment to the 
working group to this effect -- it doesn't have to be a highly formal 
statement:
