And I remeber it like it was yesterday ;-)

I unsuccessfully argued for a facility in RDF syntax to differentiate
between a URI being used to *identify* another resource (which we have
now with "resource=" attribute) and a URI that is a link to more RDF
that _could_ be dereferenced (with a new attribute "metadata=").

For W3C Memebers you review the thread starting at:

  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-rdf-syntax-wg/1998Dec/0007.html

I still think that this is a _useful_ facility for the "Semantic Web"


Cheers... Renato
