Hi All,

A recent interesting discussion (between Paul Prescod and 
Tim Bray) on the TAG list again surfaced the problems with the 
RDF/XML syntax and offered both possible solutions and another 
pitch for a simple, XML-version of N3.

Almost as a knee-jerk reaction, these ideas were tabled with the 
"not-in-the-charter" rationalization.  Are working group charters
that much of a barrier to innovation?  What is wrong with starting
a new WG while the old one wraps up its work?  

If such an effort is not possible under W3C rules, is there interest
to pursue this via an OASIS TC?  If there is interest, I will volunteer
to undertake the steps in OASIS.  Unfortunately, the small company
I work for is too cheap to join W3C or I would volunteer to do it there.

At this point, I would just like to see this "charter log jam" cleared away.

 - Mike
