Thanks! I would like to briefly discuss one comment:

"If you provide xml:base for RDF/XML and OWL/XML syntaxes, you could use @base 
in the turtle example. Alternatively your could remove all bases"

Do you suggest to declare @base even though it is not used? My choice of using 
bases, prefixes, entities, and namespaces in each syntactic form was motivated 
by making examples as short and similarly looking as possible. If one would 
really use @base in Turtle, one would have to write

<localname>

where we now write

:localname

But the latter is closer to the FS examples and it is also shorter. So @base 
could be declared but it would not be the preferred mechanism for abbreviation 
anyway.

Regards,
Markus
