I'm not sure if you intended it to sound this way, but it does sound
like your 'type' is inteded to list every single type of a resource
(apologies if that wasn't your intent). I think it's worthwhile to draw
a distinction between the type(s) that was (were) used to determine the
lens and all the other types. So instead of, say, listing foaf:Person
and ex:Researcher because they're both types for a resource, as below:


one would get this instead:


because a foaf:Person-based lens was used.

There would be no inter:type if the type wasn't used in determining the

I'm not sure how useful that constraint is in the face of the more
