Good question. I think not... I think this is input to the NewsML 2
design, intended to minimize confusion when people want to transfer
their knowledge from NewsML 2 to SPARQL and back.

It's not clear that the TAG is proposing anything, by the way;
I don't think the chair put a question to the group.

As to mutual incomprehension, yes, it seems a higher-bandwidth
medium is in order... more on that separately.
