I switched to raise because this seemed to be consistent with past  
usage (see, e.g., WebOnt issues list [1]), and because propose sounds  
to much like PROPOSED. My proposal (oops) is that issues be *raised*  
and subsequently either *accepted* or *rejected*. Once accepted, an  
issue becomes *open* until it has been *resolved* by the WG. As I  
understand it, all open issues will need to be resolved eventually,  
even if the resolution is only to postpone them. I would, however,  
welcome an official ruling on all this from Sandro.
