Hello, happy 2016 to all.
I've had a lingering question about the BF 2.0 Admin Metadata proposal. It seems to take a step in the right direction, in that it makes admin metadata easier to isolate, but in the end I don't see how it is conceptually any different from the BF 1.0
The property bf:adminMetadata is still a property of the description of a resource, not of the resource itself, and as a wise man once wrote, "The
same URI cannot identify both a document that describes the resource and the resource itself."
becomes more apparent when the resource being described is, for example, a person, rather than an abstraction like bf:Instance.
a bf:Person ;
rdfs:label "Rineer, A. Hunter (Amos Hunter), -1985" ;
a bf:AdminMetadata ;
Wouldn't it be more coherent to recommend that separate URIs be used for RWOs and the documents that describe them, as exemplified by the hash URI above?
