Charles,

You made a last call comment captured in

  http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/20030123-issues/#chas-01

The RDF Core WG has resolved

  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2003Apr/0128.html

to reject this comment on the grounds that the original reasons for
removal remain valid:

 * We had good feedback that it lived badly in RDF and as such was
   little implemented or used.

 * It broke layering by looking inside URIs rather than dealing with
   them as identifiers.

 * Felt more like a RDF/XML syntax thing than part of the RDF model
   and as such it mixed badly with triples.

 * Worked badly with rdf:bagID - the interactions were never well
   understood.

 * Experienced practitioners recommended against using it.

Please reply to this email, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org
indicating whether this decision is acceptable.

Dave
