something we have to spend a little time, possibly around the publication of the PR, is a refresh of the initial context. The following changes (additions) should be made since the last official publication:

- R2RML is now a standard; per agreement the 'rr' prefix should be added with http://www.w3.org/ns/r2rml# as a value
- SPARQL 1.1 is almost a standard (it has closed PR and should be published as Rec soon, there are only admin steps to be completed). It has a Service Description vocabulary; ie, the 'sd' prefix should be added with http://www.w3.org/ns/sparql-service-description#
- The Provenance vocabulary is almost a spec. It will be published as PR tomorrow (Tuesday 12th). The 'prov' prefix should be added http://www.w3.org/ns/prov#

We should also check some of the vocabularies defined by the eGov Working Group that may define additional vocabularies very soon.

Beyond the W3C specific prefixes, the only change I see is the request of DCMI to use 'dc11' as an alternative to http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/. There was a long thread on this at some point, and we agreed in this solution.

I have not seen any new vocabulary popping up in the wild that would warrant addition to the list. Ie, I do not think it is worthwhile going through the search engine approach this time.

The changes themselves are trivial. We may want to extend the test cases, but I am not sure; these are not necessary for the PR. That being said, we have to find a way to notify all implementers. I wonder whether it is not worthwhile to have some sort of a mailing list at rdfa.info that collects all implementers that have used the test suite, and we could use for such announcement. Of course, we would make an announcement on the W3C SW Activity blog, resent to twitter and G+, but I am not sure that would be enough.
