Re: New version of Atom+RDFa

Hey Toby,

- Process comment: personally, I would like to see this document end up as a W3C WG Note. For that to happen, we should publish a First Public Working Draft and then, after a suitable public comment period, we can directly publish a WG Note. I wonder whether it is a realistic plan to combine publication of this First Public Working Draft with the publication of the recommendation, ie, the 7th of June. This means moving the document to W3C space, ask for a short name from Thomas and... that is about it...

Then we would have to have a publication of the final Notes 2-3 weeks after the Rec. We can combine that with the publication of the API docs as Notes.

- I also have some technical comments

1. The document defines a default vocabulary URI. It is, however, silent on whether the RDFa Core initial context terms, defined in http://www.w3.org/2011/rdfa-context/rdfa-1.1 are valid for Atom as well or not. There is no inheritance of those terms, so it must be stated explicitly. I would think these should be valid for Atom, too.

2. I am not sure I understand the rationale for the rules in the <link> element. Can you explain?


P.S. I should have my Atom implementation updated soon in pyRdfa...
