Jeremy,

In

     http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2001Jul/0041.html

you raised an issue which was captured in

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

as

[[[
Clarify the legality of the use of names from the RDF namespace, e.g. can 
rdf:Bag be used as a property or can rdf:Description be used as a property 
attribute etc.
]]]

In addition to previous WG decisions as noted in:

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2001OctDec/0388.html

as recorded in:

   http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/20020225-f2f/#d-2002-02-25-3

the WG has further decided:

[[
that an RDF processor SHOULD emit a warning when encountering names in the 
RDF namespace which are not defined, but should otherwise behave normally.

Specifically:

   <rdf:Description>
     <rdf:foo>foo</rdf:foo>
   </rdf:Description>

is equivalent to:

_:a <rdf:foo> "foo" .

and the issue is closed.
]]

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