FYI: [CURIE Syntax 1.0 is a Candidate Recommendation (Call for Implementations)]

To: W3C OWL Working Group <public-owl-wg@w3.org>, public-rif-wg@w3.org

As far as I know, both the RIF and the OWL document have a normative
dependence on the CURIE spec. I think it is therefore good news that
CURIE is advancing on the rec track and this reference will not create
problems for the OWL and RIF documents...

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

I am pleased to announce that CURIE Syntax 1.0 is a W3C
Candidate Recommendation:

The approval and publication are in response to this transition request:

Information can be found below about changes since the Last Call
working draft
and about the current state of implementations and the test suite.

This Call for Implementations follows section 7.4.3 of the W3C Process

For Tim Berners-Lee, Director,
Philippe Le Hegaret, Interactions Domain Lead and
Steven Pemberton, HTML Activity Lead;
Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications


Changes to the specification since the previous Last Call WD can be
reviewed via a diff-marked version:

Details of the comments received on the Last Call WD and their
disposition can be found here:

It should be noted that the XML Core WG were unable to reach consensus
on a
position with regards to CURIEs, but agreed that the specification
should proceed.

A test suite with coverage of the primary CURIE constructs is a part of
the RDFa test suite:

The Working Group expects to request that the Director advance this
document to Proposed Recommendation once the Working Group has
completed the test suite and demonstrated at least two interoperable
implementations for each test. Based on known implementations, the
Working Group expects a CR period of 4 weeks. An ongoing implementation
report will be maintained:

      Quoting from CURIE Syntax 1.0

CURIE Syntax 1.0
A syntax for expressing Compact URIs
W3C Candidate Recommendation 16 January 2009
This version:


    This document defines a generic, abbreviated syntax for
expressing URIs. This syntax is intended to be used as a common
element by language designers. Target languages include, but are not
limited to, XML languages. The intended audience for this document is
Language designers, not the users of those Languages.

  Status of this Document:

This document is a Candidate Recommendation of the CURIE Syntax
specification. It is based upon comments received during the last call
period, upon work done in the definition of [XHTML2], and upon work
done by the RDF-in-HTML Task Force, a joint task force of the Semantic
Web Best Practices and Deployment Working Group and XHTML 2 Working
Group. It is considered mature and stable by the working group. A
record of how the comments from the last call period were addressed is
available athttp://www.w3.org/MarkUp/2008/curie-lc-doc-20080618.html .
An implementation report is available at
. The working group invites comments on this draft through 6 February
2009. Comments should be addressed to www-html-editor@w3.org. All
comments sent to that address are available in a (public archive). The
working group intends to submit this document for consideration as a
W3C Proposed Recommendation after 6 February 2009 having met the
following criteria:
At least two interoperable implementations support all of the features
required in this document.
All issues raised during the CR period against this document have
received formal responses.

Publication as a Candidate Recommendation does not imply endorsement
by the W3C Membership. This is a draft document and may be updated,
replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is
inappropriate to cite this document as other than work in progress.

This document has been produced by the W3C XHTML 2 Working Group as
part of the HTML Activity. The goals of the XHTML 2 Working Group are
discussed in the XHTML 2 Working Group charter.

This document was produced by a group operating under the 5 February
2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent
disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the group;
that page also includes instructions for disclosing a patent. An
individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual
believes contains Essential Claim(s) must disclose the information in
accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy.

Please report errors in this specification to www-html-editor@w3.org
(archive). It is inappropriate to send discussion email to this
address. Public discussion may take place on www-html@w3.org (archive).
