They are both normative. Obvious for the RDF Semantics. And RDF Concepts is
needed in order to determine the syntax of an OWL 2 Full ontology (this
document specifies the abstract syntax of RDF, i.e., specifies what an RDF
graph is), and it also defines and explains a few terms used in the
RDF-Based Semantics, e.g. concerning literals and datatypes.

>but should they reference "latest version"? I suspect not.

Both are W3C Recommendations, so I guess that "latest version" would be
redundant. Of course, one can have an entry "latest version" for /each/ of
the references. If the WG feels that this is a good idea, I will add them.

More generally, maybe we should settle on a common format for all references
in all our documents. 

Cheers,
Michael
