Stuart,

With reference to:
    http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/20030123-issues/#williams-01

The RDFcore working group have considered your comment:

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2003JanMar/0238.html

suggesting that "Nodes in an RDF are ... labelled with a URI Reference 
...".   We recognize that the terminology used has been inconsistent, and 
have resolved:

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2003Apr/0207.html

to revise the terminology consistently in a different way to that you 
suggest, viz. that URI References *are* nodes in an RDF graph, in line with 
the terminology articulated by Pat Hayes [1].

[1] http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2003Feb/0152.html

(I also note that the description of abstract graph syntax in section 6 of 
Concepts is
already consistent with this terminology.)

Can you please respond to <www-rdf-comments@w3.org> indicating whether this 
response is satisfactory.  Thank you.
