Admittedly so, but that's not the same thing as actually performing normalization or otherwise modifying the processing of the content.

Hmm... was that the TP where someone rode in the boot of my rental car? Or the one where Martin and Richard were in the famous photo? If the latter, I might not have been there for the conversation you have in mind, although I clearly recall discussing RDF normalization with you around that time. The problem with normalization is that we have so many conversations to choose from over the years ;-).
