Bob--

[Catching up with some backed-up Primer work].

In message 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2003AprJun/0003.html 
you indicated to Graham Klyne that it was OK to deal with your concerns 
about whether RDF supported expressing propositional attitudes (we've 
agreed that it doesn't) by removing the material that seemed to suggest 
it did.  Earlier, in message 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2003JanMar/0466.html,
you'd agreed with my suggestion that I'd try to deal with this in the 
Primer by explicitly describing the propositional attitude problem, and 
saying that we don't support expressing those things.  Given what Graham 
is going to do, I'm now reluctant to explicitly bring up propositional 
attitudes in the Primer (since it won't now come up the the Concepts 
spec), only to say that we don't support them.  It seems to me bringing 
this subject up might create unnecessary confusion.  So could we modify 
our agreement in the latter message to NOT talk about propositional 
attitudes in the Primer (the other Primer fixes we agreed on concerning 
reificiation would still stand)?
