Re: Coordination with RDF Core

Let me make a stab at the URI concerns.

1/ Although there is a syntax for a general URI, there does not appear to
be a good specification for the URIs that appear in RDF documents.  In
particular, I am concerned with how URIs are composed in the presence of
namespaces and RDF ``fragments'', including whether namespaces are
permissable in URIs that are not XML URIs.  There has been considerable RDF
debate on these points.

2/ As far as semantics goes, what is the domain of discourse?  Does it have
a non-trivial structure?  Can two syntactically-different URIs point to the
same domain element?
