Great!  Thanks for a productive discussion.

Well, I am sort of, at least at this stage (i.e. prior to IETF last call);
the application/rdf+xml draft says to send comments here.

But certainly, if this goes last call without addressing this issue to my
liking, then I'll mention that as a last call comment on ietf-types.

I might also take it to the TAG too, since I think they'll generally be
more appreciative of the importance and subtlety of this issue than will
the IESG.

I agree with you that those specs don't address the issue.  Hence my
push to get *this* spec to address it. 8-)

Thanks again.
