I'm looking for issues we can close easily, and the name
thing seems pretty well settled: I'm getting pretty much
uniformly positive feedback on SPARQL.

But people then ask "what does it stand for?"

I think the original proposal was
  "Simple Protocol and RDF Query Language"

but we haven't propagated that expansion into the draft(s).

I propose that we do so.

Hmm... what become of "ACTION EricP: set up a naming poll using WBS"?

I guess we dropped it somehow. It doesn't seem worthwhile to me.
Does anybody still want to do that?
