RDF-ISSUE-97 (interpretations-depends-on-V): Should the semantics of RDF graphs be dependent on a vocabulary? [RDF Semantics]

http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/track/issues/97

Raised by: Antoine Zimmermann
On product: RDF Semantics

Currently, all notions of "interpretation" in RDF Semantics depend on a vocabulary V. An interpretation of a vocabulary V cannot interpret terms that are not in V. This leads to certain unexpected non-entailments, for instance:

 { :s :p "2"^^xsd:integer }

does not XSD-entail:

 { :s :p "+2"^^xsd:integer }

or, in RDFS semantics, the triple:

 { ex:s  rdf:type  rdfs:Resource }

is not true in all graphs.
