Hi folks,

I know there was a discussion about the equivalence in meaning 
using a rdf:bag or not, but can't find it anymore. 

Now, lately discussing with a friend, I got confused wether the 
following three statements are equivalent. We came up with the 
question, since in a distributed environment everybody can describe 
a resource without necessarily knowing about other descriptions. 

Is A) one Description containing several properties

<rdf:RDF>
	<rdf:Description about="mypage.html">
		<dc:cerator>me</dc:creator>
		<dc:titel>My homepage</dc:Title>
	</rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>

equal to B) several descriptions about the same resource in the 
same XML-Document

<rdf:RDF>
	<rdf:Description about="mypage.html">
		<dc:cerator>me</dc:creator>
	</rdf:Description>

	<rdf:Description about="mypage.html">
		<dc:titel>My homepage</dc:Title>
	</rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>

equal to C)
several descriptions in serveral XML-Dokuments.

<rdf:RDF>
	<rdf:Description about="mypage.html">
		<dc:cerator>me</dc:creator>
	</rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>

---

<rdf:RDF>
	<rdf:Description about="mypage.html">
		<dc:titel>My homepage</dc:Title>
	</rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>


as far as I understand this should all make up to the same graph.

cheers,

Jochen
