[protege-owl] Using rdf:resource which is not a Named Individual: protege 4.1 question

In the OWL 2.0 specification, the object that you are describing does 
not exist.  Since it is named it must probably be an OWL entity which is 
either a class, object property, data property, annotation property, 
datatype, named individual.  You can see this list for yourself here 
[1].   There is also the anonymous individual but this doesn't have a 
name like your resource.

You might reply that there is also an rdf based semantics [2].  But this 
is really an entirely different language and is not supported by most 
OWL tools.  In the OWL 1 case, I know that there are papers that talk 
about the mappings between OWL DL and OWL Full.   The correspondence is 
not as simple as you might think.  I suspect that the only way to 
support [2] is through an RDF editor.  There are plans to build one of 
these for Protege 4 but this work has not started yet.
