	The RDF IG is now getting enough of a mass to maintain discussions and
further generate interest in RDF. Some of these discussions may be highly
technical, others sociopolitical, but that is what happens to all discussion
groups as they get popular.

	I very much agree with your proposal but question (truly question -- i'm
not dead set one way or the other) whether it would be best held on RDF-IG
or on a new list. For example SAX was crafted on XML-DEV during the heydey
of high volume discussion. As an API developed on a mail group, SAX is hard
to beat in all respects.

	+1 on the activity.
