Hi,

Once you bring OWL into the picture, every resource has rdf:type
owl:Thing in addition to any defined rdf:type. Any rdfs:Class (C) that
is rdfs:subClassOf another class (C') implies that every instance of
type C is also of type C'. I would argue that a resource with multiple
(implied) rdf:type(s) is the rule, not the exception.

best, Erik Hetzner
