Hi Manu/All, 

Thanks for this. I can confirm that having looked at your resolution you have addressed the concerns which I initially raised. As per the resolution you cited in your minutes [1], I can confirm that you have satisfied my concern. 

FWIW, it looks like you have taken the same approach to handling punycoded IRIs as the RDF WG.

All the best, and good luck with the rest of the RDFa work.
