Peter--

You made a last call comment "Can RDF say anything about anything?" 
captured in

http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/RDFCore/20030123-issues/#pfps-15

The RDFCore WG has resolved

   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/w3c-rdfcore-wg/2003Mar/0068.html

to accept this comment, and has given me editorial discretion to amend 
the Primer in light of the comment.  What I propose is to change the 
text that you mentioned in your comment (in Section 3.2 of the Primer) from:

"These examples also illustrate one of the basic architectural 
principles of the Web, which is that anyone should be able say anything 
they want about existing resources [BERNERS-LEE98]."

to

"These examples also illustrate that anyone should be able to freely 
make additional RDF statements about a resource, using any RDF 
vocabulary they please.  This is in keeping with a basic architectural 
principle of the Web: "The Web works though anyone being (technically) 
allowed to say anything about anything" [BERNERS-LEE98], although in 
these examples the principle is necessarily restricted to those 
statements that can be expressed in RDF."

This is recorded in the Primer Editors Draft change list as primerLCC-019.

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