I have a different point of view. Sometime we are in fast interested in the
container rather than the information. This is the case when the container
represents the "producer of the information" and the information is changing
frequently. E.g. I have tons of bookmarks for news outlets, blogs, etc. which I
visit regularly to see the latest information whatever it might be.
At this time I do not entirely follow how the Excerpt concept relates to
Bookmarking. In my opinion, bookmark is just a pointer to some other piece of
information, whatever it might be. So bookmark can be pointer to a container,
to a specific information, portion of some information (which is by having
ability to stand on its own information by itself as well). I am completely new
to the whole RDF world so I do not know how to properly express it, but it
seems to me that you have classes to describe all kinds of information that may
be have meaning on its own (e.g. image is standalone piece of information,
person in the image is also standalone information, eye color of the person in
the image is also standalone information). Bookmark can be then pointer to
whatever piece of information that make sense to the user who created it.
