Thanks, Stuart. I hadn't seen that page.

It does look, though, as if the object of bf:contributor is an Agent. 
(Person, Corporate body, Family). The subject is the Work or Instance. 
This is the reverse of what you have. If "bf:contributor" is defined in 
RDF with a domain of Work/Instance and a range of Agent, then your 
statement doesn't match that.

I tried running the RDF/XML on that page through a triple-izer, but it 
appears that there is some XML in it that doesn't translate to RDF. 
bf:contributor ended up in a blank node for this reason, so its domain 
and range still aren't clear.
