I didn't find much relevant about this issue in the mailing list archive (though very well could have missed it), and so am not sure if this was discussed within the WG before the decision was made. I'm not sure how believing that this is a "frustrating transition but hope that it will lead to improved user experience in the long run" aligns with requiring users in the near term to remember two different grammar rules. Why not have "@prefix" and "PREFIX" (similarly for "@base" and "BASE") be simply a syntactic variation with no difference in the grammar?


Eric,

I see at [1] that this comment has been marked as resolved, despite my quoted response above indicating that I didn't believe the second part of my comment had been addressed at all. Can this please be fixed, or another comment line be created for this issue?

thanks,
.greg
