Congratulations to the authors of this document. I find it very clear
and well written, and most of the comments I had have been expressed
by Art on this list (I find the one on the differences between M&S1.0
and RDF1.NG -- particularly containers -- especially important, since
they left me quite confused at the time). A couple of additional
remarks:

- in section 3, the path shown on figure 7 does not correspond to 
  the node/arc stripes listed below.

- section 4: examples should come earlier in the section. I, as someone
  who knows type systems from programming languages, got rather confused
  reaching the following statement is rather confusing:

  "However, RDF differs from many programming language type systems in
  that [...] an RDF schema defines properties in terms of the classes
  of resource to which they apply."

  This should be followed by an example, before getting into details
  of the rdfs syntax.

Max.
