Mischa, you did the right thing! The whole IRI/URI mess is on the radar screen for a possible new RDF work, and was also flagged as part of the Workshop output[1].

B.t.w., and as a minor remark: We do not know whether this will lead to a RDF 2.0. Maybe only RDF 1.1 or RDF 1.01. Let us try to avoid turning the RDF 2.0 as a widely used meme, for many people 2.0 means a radical overhaul which I do not believe would happen now:-). I, diplomatically, refer to it as RDF Next for the time being...

Thanks!

Cheers
