The following suggestions follow our vocabulary versioning methodology, 
which
keeps disjunct the identity of vocabularies from their representations 
(i.e.
RDF/XML documents, etc.).

Major versions are indicated in the namespace name. Minor versions are 
reflected
in the RDF/XML document names (see below).

So for each of the following, I propose both a namespace, and an 
initial home
for the RDF/XML document:

xmlns:trix="http://sw.nokia.com/TriX-1/"
URL: http://sw.nokia.com/trix/schemas/TriX-1.0.rdf

> - an rdfg namespace with RDFS/OWL Schema

xmlns:rdfg="http://sw.nokia.com/RDFG-1/"
URL: http://sw.nokia.com/trix/schemas/RDFG-1.0.rdf

> - an swp namespace with RDFS/OWL Schema

xmlns:swp="http://sw.nokia.com/SWP-1/"
URL: http://sw.nokia.com/trix/schemas/SWP-1.0.rdf

I'll then add the necessary links to the TriX homepage I've
been maintaining at http://sw.nokia.com/trix/.

And these vocabularies will be syndicated into the Nokia SW Server
such that one can access both human browsable and machine readable
(RDF) representations of the terms. I.e. simply doing a GET on
http://sw.nokia.com/RDFG-1/Graph will provide a description of
that class, etc.

Whether we want to employ the VOC vocabulary for vocabulary
descriptions [1] is an open question. If so, I'm happy creating
the RDF/XML documents accordingly. See [2] for an example.

Anyway, are the namespaces/URLs above OK with you guys?

Would the following dc:rights statement be adequate/acceptable:

(the Nokia legal trolls like that last bit to be in there, not that it 
isn't
usually obvious to anyone with half a clue...)
