I have uploaded a new editors draft of Guide and wine.rdf and food.rdf.

Fixed everything outstanding (see note responding to Jeremy below).
Need to run through validators and candidate ref documentation to make
sure the i's are dotted.

DONE.  Had been done but not uploaded.

Pending my improved understanding of how and when to synchronize this.
I don't want an editor's draft out there with dangling references.

I haven't done this.  The question is, should I?  I like it and had intended
to do so, but it seems to me there was some past inhibition.

DONE.  And I added a comment in food.owl briefly explaining option b.

But I use it in some of the text in the Guide.  So I left it.

DONE.  Using .rdf suffix.
