Jonathan,

At their 15 Nov 2003 ftf meeting, the TAG resolved
issue rdfmsQnameUriMapping-6, which you raised [2].
The TAG summarized the resolution as:

  "The use of Qnames as identifiers without providing a mapping to 
   URIs is inconsistent with Web Architecture. See the TAG finding 
   Using Qualified Names (QNames) as Identifiers in Content [3]."

I also note that the Architecture Document includes text on 
the relationship between QNames and URIs; see section 4.5.5 in
the 28 Nov Editor's Draft [4].

Please let us know whether you are satisfied with this outcome.
Thanks again for your help and contributions,

 _ Ian
