I'm not clear what the problem is, so have no opinion at this point.  I 
believe there has been previous discussion which I haven't read (yet).  It 
would be helpful to have a succinct statement of the problem to capture in 
the issues list.

At a first glance I have no problem with Peter's definitions of RDF and 
RDFS entailment, but I don't follow why they imply that we have to change 
the text in the RDFS spec describing rdfs:comment.  I take it there is a 
deep issue here, not just one of wordsmithing.
