That's what I meant: we only need to decide how our first examples look, 
and explain how that XML syntax is derived from the abstract one. And we 
can say explicitely that no decision has been yet made regarding the 
precise XML syntax for RIF Core and these are for illustrative purposes 
only.

And I agree that we should avoid having people who will read WD focus on 
  aspects we barely discussed yet (and that ugly examples might indeed 
have that effect :-)
