Thanks for keeping us up to date, Eran. I'll look at the latest LRDD.
I'm preparing a memo on the new RFCs to help introduce them to the
linked data community and explain their potential uses (TAG
ACTION-363). There may be followon coordination work, if that
community (or should I say: one or more clients and one or more
servers) decides to make use of the new mechanisms.
