My recent trip to the US took up a lot more time than I had
anticipated, so nothing was done on this over the last 2 weeks. I
intend to work on this during Monday.

With respect to everyone's comments, I haven't yet seen anything other
than stated 'preferences' about what 'feels right'. Some people have
said they'll be following up with other comments, and I'd like to see
those before we spend time discussing this on a telecon. I've sent
some comments to the list re-outlining the rationale behind the
current position, with the intention of trying to get focused answers.
I'd really appreciate (a) a *logical* justification for why using
plain literals is more *correct* than using rdf:XMLLiteral and (b) a
justification for why it is a good idea to remove authors' intent by
'flattening' any mark-up in an XHTML document to be plain literals.

Regards,

Mark
