Hi all,

I'm sure you must have talked about this already, but I searched the 
groups lists and couldn't find anything.

Comment on:

"""
RDF Literal S with language L

     XML: <binding><literal xml:lang=" L "> S </literal><binding>

     JSON: "name" : {"type":"literal", "xml:lang":" L ", "value":" S"}
"""

Please can it be...

     JSON: "name" : {"type":"literal", "lang":" L ", "value":" S"}

.. instead. It's a matter of convenience, but I'd like to be able to use 
the dot operator to access the language tag in a plain literal variable 
binding. Having to do binding["xml:lang"] is a real pain.

Otherwise, thanks for the great work.

Alistair.
