Dear all,

I read your HTTP vocab WD a while ago. Thanks for the work you have put 
into it! I have two short comments, first a use case:

For Scutters, i.e. web spiders that indexes RDF, one may like to record 
information about the HTTP request and response along with the data for 
later use. I created one on my sparetime [1] and followed the 
specifications at [2], but noted that there really wasn't a good HTTP 
headers vocabulary at the time. I believe scuttering will be quite 
important, and I think you have resolved that issue. Which you may well 
brag about! :-)

[2] http://rdfweb.org/topic/ScutterVocab

I note that you require the response body to be base64-encoded CDATA. I 
don't know if you have discussed the use of RDF's parsetypes? Under 
some conditions, XML chunks can reasonably be embedded by using a 
rdf:parseType="Literal" [3] I would think, so I was thinking that 
restricting to a base64-encoded chunk was overly restrictive.
