the phrase "we define such a ``subspace'' by a predicate..." has convinced this classical mathematician not to read the rest of this post

comment Gabriel's theorem over a commutative ring
semisimple is most probably not a condition you're willing to impose, since a semisimple ring is a direct sum of fields.

comment Computing Euler Charactistics of Line bundles on Hilbert Schemes of points on Surfaces
Using that stuff for this computation would be utterly absurd. The Hilbert scheme of two points is just the blowup of the diagonal of the symmetric product, which should give you an explicit handle on all the classes you need for RR.
