Earlier in the year when Peter and Deiter were producing their 
layering document, I was rather out of the loop and got behind 
reading all the email discussions. Going back over it now, I find 
that an idea was being discussed about a possible change to RDF, 
which was phrased as "moving rdf:type to the meta-theory". (eg 1a in 

I have absolutely no idea what this means or could possibly mean. 
(What meta-theory??) Can anyone enlighten me about what exactly this 
proposal was? A pointer would suffice, if the idea has been written 
up somewhere.

I would like to know, as the thinking behind this might well be 
relevant to the layering issue, and it seems likely that these will 
be with us for the forseeable future, as the system consisting of RDF 
coreWG, Webont and the Coordination Committee seems to have the 
dynamics of a freeway accident played in slow-motion.
