  I, like a number of other members of the WG, have basically lost 
track of what is going on where, and this is made really hard by the 
multithreads of the discussion.  Just as an example, Pat has sent at 
least three different "how to do" DT proposals to the list, but 
people are still refering to "Pat's proposal" in various messages, as 
if it is a single thing.
  JEremy's summary was a great help, but it mostly dealt with this 
technically.  I need a "process" oriented summary - would it be 
possible to create a document with the following:

I Dark Triples-based approaches
   A. Approaches that require RDF Core to change RDF Core
   B. Approaches that are "OWL only"
II Non-Dark triples-based approaches

Where in each of these 3 categories (I.A, I.B, II) we have only a 
couple of sentence description and a pointer to a message with more 

If this could be a living document, kept up to date on line somewhere 
and growing or shrinking (as needed) in categories, it would be a 
huge help to the rexst of the WG, and probably be necessary if we are 
ever to reach any sort of end to the endless debate...

Think of it as a "dark triples issues list"

  Anyone willing to take this on?
p.s. Yes, I know all this info is out there, but it's in over 300 
email messages, which is a little much for me to ask non-WG members 
to look at.
