Not at all: I'm saying that if an RDF file declares a propery by using a
namespace, and further that that RDF model contains a mixture of properties
and classes, then the namespace of the declared properties and classes
shuold be a dereferancable RDF Schema. If you declare properties in an RDF
file, then the URI you are using to represent these properties should say
something about those properties. I made no implication whatsoever that an
RDF system should only request RDF in its HTTP requests. I meant that if it
dereferences something that it needs, then it's going to assume that it is
useful: i.e. an RDF Schema.
