you raised an issue which was captured in



RDF containers, such as sequences are represented using ordinal properties 
of the form rdf:_n. Sequences represented in this way cannot be sorted 
recursively in languages such as Prolog. This has led to the definition of 
the DAML+OIL list representation which can be easily processed recursively.

As recorded in


the RDFCore WG has decided to add a list structure similar to that of 
DAML+OIL.  The full resolution and a test case can be found at the above link.

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