[Crm-sig] FRBRoo model v1.0.2 in RDFS

Hi all,
I have been using FRBRoo as a base model for a vocabulary about ancient 
manuscripts, in a project called Sharing Ancient Wisdoms (SAWS) [1].
For this I am in the process of mapping our SAWS ontology to FRBRoo, 
using the RDFS encoding of v1.0.1 of the FRBRoo model [2]. To some 
extent this is working well. However:

- I see that a v1.0.2 of FRBRoo was published at [2] as a doc and a pdf 
in January 2010, but I can find no RDFS encoding of the newer version. 
Are there plans to release an RDFS encoding of v1.0.2 (or has this 
already been done and I am just looking in the wrong places?) If needed, 
I would be happy to volunteer my help in this, although I am very much a 
novice in the FRBRoo world.

- The current RDFS model of FRBRoo v1.0.1 is harmonised with CIDOC CRM 
v5.0.2. It is available in two forms: using IDs based on initial codes 
only (e.g. F2, R2F) [3], and using initial codes followed by english 
names, e.g. F2.Expression [4]. I would prefer to use the [4] version 
with English names (my memory of codes is poor).
However although the [3] version refers to the current version of CIDOC 
(e.g. http://www.cidoc-crm.org/rdfs/cidoc-crm#E89), which I prefer, the 
[4] version is hard-coded to refer to CIDOC v5.0.2 only (e.g. 
even though 
is available.
         - is there a reason for this difference?
         - if a FRBR v1.0.2 RDFS schema is planned, how will it refer to 

Thanks in advance for any comments you may have here, your help is 

PS I would like to post on these lists when the SAWS ontology is fully 
mapped to FRBRoo and published, to consult list members' opinions and 
expertise on this mapping work?
