Per our discussion in the last teleconference, I have removed
references to the REST architectural style in the editor's draft and
replaced them (where necessary) with text describing it's concordance
with HTTP, instead:

http://www.w3.org/2009/sparql/docs/http-rdf-update/

A summary of the changes is below.

----------------

First paragraph of abstract
"This document describes the use of HTTP operations for the purpose of
managing a collection of RDF graphs in the REST architectural style."

->

"This document describes the use of HTTP operations for the purpose of
managing a collection of RDF graphs."

First 2 paragraphs of Introduction

"This document describes updating and fetching RDF graph content from
a Graph Store over HTTP in the REST style [REST].  In doing so, it
appeals to the following interface constraints that comprise the REST
architectural style:"

->

"This document describes an application protocol for the distributed
updating and fetching of RDF graph content in a Graph Store via the
mechanics of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) [RFC2616].  In
doing so, it appeals to the following interface constraints that
emphasize the core, architectural components underlying HTTP:"

Removed the first sentence (below) of paragraph immediately after list
of interface constraints:

"The REST architectural style specifically conceives of a hypermedia
application framework through the prism of these constraints and the
parenthetical remarks in the list above demonstrate how each
constraint is met."

Removed Representation State Transfer architectural style (REST) from
terminology

Removed last sentence of second paragraph in 5.7 HTTP PATCH
(Informative) that describes the counter-intuition of a PATCH request
that modifies more than one RDF graph with respect to REST.

Removed informative reference to Fielding REST architectural style
dissertation chapter

I will modify the draft response to James accordingly.
