Danny, although we had a phone call last week where we discussed this, for  
the record when I mentioned this to the HTML WG last week, they laughed  
and said "but it's *our* proposal!"

The resolution I referred to was the resolution of the WG to adopt the  
approach and suggest it to the SemWeb community. I don't see what more  
clarity you can wish for!

Well, I posted the URL of a draft sometime back to the TF[1] and got no  
remarks, so assumed that the TF was happy with what there was, and we  
could carry on with the one remaining issue of bnodes. I believe that that  
is correct W3C protocol.

Resolutions don't time out; you only have to make them once. If we publish  
a draft and no one comments, and then someone complains that they don't  
know what the status is, then someone isn't paying enough attention :-)

Best wishes,
