Hi Mark (and Norm),

Many thanks for clarifying the situation re N3 [1].  This poses a 
serious problem for the IPTC.  We have hitherto intended to use 
GRDDL to harvest triples from NewsML 2.  These triples would, 
presumably, be expressed using N3.  In the light of the latest 
information, our choices seem to be:

-  Use N3 in a non-conforming way, eg by allowing local parts 
   which are not NCNames.

-  Use something other than N3.
