Hi All,

Just catching up after making the move back to the US.

I haven't given a full review of Gregg's document yet. So far I've read the
email discussion, and I want to note that from my standpoint as an
implementer I am in full agreement with all of Jeni's
points<http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-data-tf/2011Nov/0173.html>.
I will review the mapping itself more thoroughly and try it with my current
use case to see if I have any comments that haven't been addressed yet.
