Dear RDF Working Group (sending this also explicitly to Guus, David and 
Sandro as co-chairs / staff contact, to raise their awareness), with CC 
to the MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group,

with this mail I am asking the RDF Working Group to review the ITS 2.0 
draft at [1]. The latest draft under TR space is a last call draft [2]. 
A diff between the two drafts is here [3]. Note that during last call we 
did a lot of changes to the informative sections 1-2 (which are not 
relevant for the normative definition of ITS 2.0).

ITS 2.0 provides metadata items ("data categories") to foster the 
(automated) creation and processing of multilingual Web content: mostly 
HTML and XML. What may be of special interest for you is the ITS 2.0 
approach to convert markup documents into RDF. This results in triples 
that make use of the NIF ontology [4]. See the definition of the NIF 
conversion algorithm at [5] and tests (= examples) from our test suite 
in the implementation report [6]. Of course a general review from the 
RDF WG would be nice, but I assume that this feature of ITS 2.0 is of 
most interest for you.

Our last call period already ended 11 June, and my apologies for being 
late with this request. If you need more info to move this forward 
please let me know.

Best regards,

Felix Sasaki (co-chair and staff contact for the MultilingualWeb-LT 
Working Group)
