Here are some words others can throw rocks at.


I^2 identifiers should be http URIs so that agents anywhere in the world can easily dereference the identifier and get back information about the institution. This http identifier should behave according to Linked Data conventions so that humans and machines can use HTTP content negotiation to retrieve a convenient representation (HTML, XML, RDF, etc.) without confusing the institution's identity with the identity of the various web document representations.





See my earlier OWL and example mockup for details.

hi all,


I am hearing on the grapevine that it would be beneficial to add a few words about "why" I2 should care about a HTTP, Linked Data approach. There seems to be a lack of understanding of the possible value.

	How about:


	"Dereferencing the URI with an HTTP request is the simplest and most

	straightforward way to obtain a copy of the metadata"



	On URI vs. URL, does it make sense at all to suggest the registration of

	a urn namespace with IANA? Or do non-dereferenceable URIs like that just

	muddy the waters?

In a linked data perspective, I guess we should advocate strongly in
favor of a dereferenceable URI approach.
