Dan,

In

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2001JanMar/0077.html

an issue with the RDF specs was raised on your behalf which was recorded in

   http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfms-logical-terminololgy

as

   The current RDF terminology is inconsistent with the long established
   terminology used by logicians. For example, what RDF'er's call a 'model'
   is called an 'abstract syntax' by logicians. Logicians use the term
   model but for something quite different.

On 9th November 2001, as recorded in

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2001Nov/0294.html

the RDFCore WG resolved

   The WG closes rdfms-logical-terminololgy on the grounds that the
   new terminology introduced by the model theory adequately
   addresses this issue.

Please reply to this message, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org indicating whether 
this resolution is acceptable.
