Dear Robert,

As I pointed out in my message:

I said "just define precisely what you use it for", and "when a good 
community practice emerges".

I recommend NOT to recommend rdf:value, because RDFS 1.1 defines:
"5.4.3 rdf:value rdf:value is an instance of rdf:Property 
<https://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-schema/#ch_property> that may be used in 
describing structured values. rdf:value has no meaning on its own. "

As CRM-SIG, we cannot recommend a property without meaning. We do 
ontology here, so the must be a minimal ontological commitment. Are 
there other opinions?

Taken the above definition in RDFS 1.1, I question both, the precise use 
and the emerging good practice,
until better evidence:-).
Do you have better evidence?

It is up to crm-sig to decide, I present only my opinion here.
