Hi David,

Great to hear others working on this! Johannes (CC'ed) has been the lead editor of the ERT WG document "HTTP Vocabulary in RDF". Basically it is an extension of Eric's work using the relevant RFCs. It is still an early Editors' Draft but we welcome feedback and comments:

We intend to publish this document as a W3C Working Group Note after further refinement (though it should be pretty stable, we just have a couple of questions open -they are indicated as editors' notes within the document).
