The RDFCore WG has been resolved some more issues on the issues list.

  http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdf-equivalent-uris
  http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfms-validating-embedded-rdf

have both been postponed on the grounds that addressing them would require the 
WG to go beyond its current charter.

  http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfs-constraint-properties-resources

Constraint properties and resources have been removed from RDF Schema because 
they didn't achieve their goals.

  http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfms-resource-semantics

This issue requested a more precise definition of what a resource is and how it 
relates to other concepts such as URI and entity.  The new model theory is a 
significant step forward and says enough about resources to provide a 
mathematical formalization of RDF.

  http://www.w3.org/2000/03/rdf-tracking/#rdfms-logical-terminololgy

This issue pointed out that some of RDF's terminology conflicted that used by 
logicians.  The WG agreed that this problem was fixed by the approach taken in 
the model theory.
