I couldn't make up my mind whether this recently-published Internet draft 
was of relevance to this community.  It focuses very much on network 
management issues, but some of the discussion seems relevant to RDF 
concerns.  So I figured there's no harm to post a note anyway.


A New Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts directories.

         Title           : On the Difference between Information Models and 
         Author(s)       : A. Pras, J. Schoenwaelder
         Filename        : draft-irtf-nmrg-im-dm-01.txt
         Pages           : 9

There has been ongoing confusion about the differences between
Information Models and Data Models.  This document explains the
differences between these terms by analyzing how existing network
management model specifications (from the IETF and other bodies such
as the ITU or the DMTF) fit into the universe of Information Models
and Data Models.
This memo documents the main results of the 8th workshop of the
Network Management Research Group (NMRG) of the Internet Research
Task Force (IRTF).
