I think the document "How to refer to something using a URI" is close
to being ready to shove out the door (i.e. announce on www-tag) and
I'd like to set a somewhat arbitrary deadline of March 31 for doing
so... mainly because I'm getting tired of it.

I have plenty of ideas for what happens at that point - ultimately we
need some kind of consensus document, which means getting people
involved - but this is the first step.

Here are some things that need to be done
- Maybe choose a different title. David doesn't like the current one.
Maybe something along the lines of "conveying URI definitions".
- Maybe get rid of the 'phrase' stuff, or gloss it somehow.  Generally
diminish either the number of options or their prominence.
- Better example. Using a mynah is very silly and I'm not sure I even
still use its ability to talk. Maybe something geophysical, like a
mountain or a road - ideally something that has RDF "in the wild".
Suggestions welcome. I only need 2-3 triples describing the thing.
- Some of the very short sections (3.2, 3.4, all subsections of 4) can
be expanded.

The /latest/ version fills out the summary table.

I am going to try to get critical readings from a few people,
especially Alan Ruttenberg, and each such reading will result in
improvement and possibly overhaul. Of course it would be great to get
comments from TimBL, Harry, Pat, and the other lurkers on this list
before it goes out, but I'm not too hopeful.

I've been staring at it for too long. so I can't tell what is going to
confuse a general RDF or webarch audience.
