Here are the notes I took during the HTML & XSCH breakout discussion:

HTML agenda: discuss issues raised in the TF

Phil: concerned that RDF/A addresses a closed community; the opportunity
to express a variety of use cases around RDF/A is limited.  When deployed,
RDF/A will generate an enormous interest.  Concern that some use case
might abuse this syntax.  It is important to recognize such a risk,
document expectations, and limit damage.

Jeremy: good tools are part of the solution to manage proper usage.
Modelling issues are hard to validate.

Phil: I am specifically concered about misuse of RDF to lead people
to believe they are in domains of trust that they are not really in.

Regarding triples that the RDF/A rules generate that are not included
in the document, Jeremy says the predicate and subject defaulting rules
generate some triples that might be surprising to an author.

see, e.g. Jeremy's examples in


Benjamin: what are the deadlines for this work?  I will have more time

Jeremy: there are two related working drafts in the XML Activity;
Component Designators and XPath 2.0 Functions and Operators.  A WD of
XPath 2.0 was just published on 29 October:


Jeff: as long as we stick with unary operators, the issues may not be big.

Jeremy: the output of an OWL-DL reasoner might depend on the implementation

Jeff: willing to help

Jeremy: comments on
are welcome, in particular negative comments that affect the overall direction.
