Actually, now I think about it, Andy didn't you have some cleanup task you needed me to do? Or have I done that already?

Yeah, the prevailing attitude at the RDF-WG F2F seemed to be "that's a horrible name, but were stuck with it now", I think it's entered common usage in the community, even if it's misleading/wrong from some p.o.v. As a non-logic-talking guy I don't really see anything wrong with it FWIW.
