I took an action to review how the Cool URIs document had been
changed in resonse to the comments I sent on behalf of the TAG.
I assert that this message discharges that action.

I find only three comments that appear not to have been accepted or
adopted.

/ Norman Walsh <ndw@nwalsh.com> was heard to say:
| First para of Section 3:
|
|   "On the Semantic Web" suggests that the end state is two
|   separate webs; in fact, the end state is a single web with
|   a wider range of capabilities. Consider rephrasing:
|
|     "With the advent of semantic web technologies, the web
|     is extended so that (http:?) URIs can identify not just
|     web documents but also ...

Personally, I'm satisfied that the SWEO considered the suggestion even
if they ultimately decided not to adopt it.

| Figure 1:
|
|   Please replace the diagram with the diagram in
|   http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-archive/2007Sep/0061.html
|
|   Note that the shapes in the diagram distinguish between
|   URIs and resources.

I don't think the diagram we proposed has been adopted. I'm not sure
any of the diagram changes we suggested were adopted.

| Also:
|
|   The recommendation to "err on the side of caution" is not
|   well motivated; for example, we think many relational
|   tables are "information resources" but people would not
|   consider them "Web documents", and so this recommendation
|   would result in unnecesary redirections. We suggest that
|   you add motivation for the recommendation or soften it.

I think the "err on the side of caution" text is the same.

Near the end of the current working draft, the editors identify a few
unresolved issues and "@@" references appear in several places.

I'd be happy to take an action to review the entire document again
when more of these issues have been resolved.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
