My reading is, that the semantics of the container elements themselves will not change. Is this interpretation 
correct?

There are pro's and con's: PRO: Prop2 meets, what many people think, when using rdf:ID as opposed to rdf:about. 
                           CON: Existing parsers need to be adapted. 

Comment on CON: That's necessary already by decisions cited above.
