In order to bring down the temperature, allow me to modify my 
suggested changes to the PR document. The result should be exactly 
similar to the semantics described in 2004a, but with less change to 
the actual PR text, and is visible at

http://www.ihmc.us/users/phayes/RDF_Semantics_2004b.html

see especially

http://www.ihmc.us/users/phayes/RDF_Semantics_2004b.html#defDinterp

Just to clarify: my current proposal is a minimal revision of the 
wording and style of presentation of section 5.1, in partial response 
to criticisms from Herman, but does not change the actual semantics, 
in response to observations by Peter.  I have tried to make the 
textual changes minimal in order to avoid as much controversy as 
possible at this stage.

Brian, please use this as my suggested change to submit to the WG.

I am not sure what htmldiff is doing, but what it SHOULD indicate is 
my trashing the title and 'this version' links (deliberately); about 
three or four changes to the text after the defDinterp anchor, mostly 
in the table; and a few minor changes to wording in the glossary, 
one insertion in the statement of the RDFS entailment lemma in the 
appendix, and an insertion to the change log. There are no other 
changes from the text of the Dec 15 PR.
