I was examining the definition of dwc:organismScope
(http://rs.tdwg.org/dwc/terms/organismScope ) and noticed that its
comment specifically says "To describe the kind of Organism using a URI
object in RDF, use rdf:type ... instead." The Darwin Core RDF Guide
includes dwc:organismScope in the category of terms having analogues in
the dwciri: namespace (i.e. having an IRI-reference object). I believe
that it should be removed from that list and placed in Table 3.8 
with an explanation that rdf:type should be used instead in accordance
with the term comment.
