Hmm...

no, yes, you can close that one as long as

  http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfms-seq-representation

remains open.

Hmm... no, don't close that one; in particular, we haven't
answered
  When are two bags the same? 
cf recent comment from Massimo...
crap; he didn't send it. Basically: I think that

	_:b rdf:type rdf:Bag.
	_:b rdf:_1 "abc".
	_:b rdf:_2 "def".

entails

	_:b rdf:type rdf:Bag.
	_:b rdf:_2 "abc".
	_:b rdf:_1 "def".

and generally: the _n arcs of a bag can be permuted.
(Sorry, Pat, for all the times I said "containers
don't have any other semantics." Massimo pointed
out to me that Bags do. He claimed Alt does too,
but I'm not convinced of that.)
