Hi Dave,

Please find my feedback on the WD. The feedback is mainly based on running
Thea RDF parser against the approved RDF test cases:

	Test cases:	rdf-containers-syntax-vs-schema/test004
			and
			rdfms-nested-bagIDs/test008

	Description:In both RDF cases the rdf:ID attribute in a property Elt clause
			does not result in reification of the generated statements as
			described in the WD.

	Test case : rdfms-rdf-names-use/test013.rdf
			In WD the rdf:Description is not allowed as property element name.


	Test cases:	rdfms-rdf-names-use/error008.rdf
			Abouteach is not allowed as node element name: it IS in WD

			rdfms-rdf-names-use/error009.rdf
			Abouteachprefix is not allowed as node element name: it IS in WD
	Also:
			rdfms-rdf-names-use/error016	Abouteach as property Name
			rdfms-rdf-names-use/error017	AnoutEachPrefix as property name
			rdfms-rdf-names-use/error018	AboutEach as property attribute
			rdfms-rdf-names-use/error019	AboutEachPrefix as property attribute

			In all above cases the WD DOES allow the use of these names.

Kind regards,
Vangelis

This is great to see, as the editor of that working draft (WD).  If
you have some feedback on it, I'd like to hear it - either to me
personally and/or to the www-rdf-comments list

You might want to have a look at the RDF test cases WD* (or editors
draft) which allows you to automate testing your parser.  The RDF
Core Working Group home page always contains the latest pointers:
