Good work Richard 

One minor comment
2.7 Example contains this query

            WHEN 'CLERK' THEN 'general-office'
            WHEN 'NIGHTGUARD' THEN 'security'
            WHEN 'ENGINEER' THEN 'engineering'

According to one of your previous comments If the asterisk * is combined with additional select expressions, then it needs to be qualified with a table name:

> 3. Added a class rr:TermMap to the list of R2RML classes in 4.1, as superclass of rr:(Subject|Predicate|Object|Graph)Map. Also added this to Appendix B.1. Note that classes are ignored in R2RML processing, hence no change of conformance.

> 7. Switched the order of examples in 5.2, and changed the text for the unnamed column example. Old: "the following SELECT query is not a valid R2RML query"; new: "the following SELECT query SHOULD NOT be used". In the text above, a MUST NOT was changed to SHOULD NOT in a previous draft, and the example was not updated accordingly.

> 8. Changed a sentence in 6 to reflect the fact that we now allow multiple predicate maps and object maps per predicate-object map. Old text: "Each [predicate-object map] specifies a predicate-object pair that, together with the subject generated by the subject map, may form one RDF triple for each row." New text: "They specify pairs of predicate maps and object maps that, together with the subjects generated by the subject map, may form one or more RDF triples for each row."

> 9. Added a clause to the definition of string templates for rr:template: "There SHOULD be at least one pair of unescaped curly braces." This is sort of obvious, and legitimises reporting the lack of any "{COLUMN}" section in a string template as a warning in an RDF validator.
> http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/rdb2rdf/r2rml/PR-r2rml-20120717/#dfn-string-template
> 10. Added a Note to Section 7.4 on rr:termType: "Constant-valued term maps are not considered as having a term type, and specifying rr:termType on these term maps has no effect. The type of the generated RDF term is determined directly by the value of rr:constant: If it is an IRI, then an IRI will be generated; if it is a literal, a literal will be generated."

> 12. Clarified a sentence in 8 (the resource may have further properties that are not in the rr namespace). Old: A join condition is represented by a resource that has exactly two properties"; New: "A join condition is represented by a resource that has exactly one value for each of the following two properties:"

> 14. Added more details to Appendix B.1 and B.2 in order to help implementers: The class table lists the minimum properties that a resource must have in order to be a member of the class. Some disjointness conditions are listed below the table. The property table now groups each rr:xxxMap property together with its rr:xxx shortcut in order to make the cardinalities more accurate, and highlights the four properties where the actual cardinalities depend on the presence of other properties.
