Tim,

In

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2000Feb/0172.html

you raised an issue which was captured in

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

as

[[[
Should the subjects of RDF statements be allowed to be literals?
]]]

As recorded in

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2002Feb/0476.html

the RDFCore WG has decided to close this issue:

o  the WG resolves that the current syntaxes
    (RDF/XML, n-triples, graph syntax) do not
     allow literals as subjects.

   o the WG notes that it is aware of no
     reason why literals should not be subjects
     and a future WG with a less restrictive
     charter may extend the syntaxes to allow
     literals as the subjects of statements.

Please could you respond to this message, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org 
indicating whether this is an acceptable resolution of this issue.
