Model Theory:
PatH is running a little behind schedule
Important changes:  simplification of literals, expunged weasle wording 
about (un)asserted triples, some discussion of containers - not complete.

ACTION 2002-04-26#6, PatH: If possible, submit new MT document to Eric for 
publication by 29 April, AM.

Datatypes:
bwm:  need to take care that datatype spec and model theory don't say 
different things;  some issues to be resolved between PatrickS and PatH 
about what the MT actually says

No resolutions here.

material from reviewed version PLUS new section on PRISM plus editorial 
changes.
See:

Does not deal with use of rdf:value.  Eric and Frank believe it's ready to 
publish.

Discussion about whether URI should be %-escaped to US-ASCII, of left as 
Unicode in Normal Form C (NFC).  No overwhelming opinion, but in absence of 
adequate guidance from I18N and other standards, we need to make a decision.

PROPOSED:  Leave URI reference as un-escaped Unicode (alternative is to 
convert to %-escaped US-ASCII)
Opposed:  bwm, aaronsw, josd
Abstain: frankm
All others agree or concur
Some test cases (Item 13) resolved in light of this decision...
