A reminder: please take a look at these Working Drafts. The WG is in the 
process of preparing for a second Last Call phase, consolidating  
changes made in response to feedback received during our earlier LC and 
subsequently. If you have additional comments to make on these drafts, 
please send them to www-rdf-comments in time for our teleconference next 
week (ie. by 2nd Oct).

Many thanks,
