Hi Jonathan,

Don't worry, no harm done, I too believe we're close to pay dirt and 
happy to keep on going (we have too imo), lets just agree not to start 
throwing things at each other across the meeting hall :p

Before going any further, have you seen:
   http://www.w3.org/2007/Talks/1211-whit-tbl/

Quite possibly the best set of slides I've every seen (and reference 
frequently when reading other things from timbl), the devils in the 
detail with them, and 21-28 are pretty critical to what we're discussing.

inline from here..

Shall we focus on the cc license chooser then? I feel it's a very 
important use case, it also covers the RDF in HTML side of things, and 
we should flesh out how and if each alternative approach breaks the 
application - I can see how it does with some, but not all.

I need to give you some feedback on that page, v soon.

Yes, I'm happy to discuss on 'phone/skype/irc as much as you like.

Best,
