>Jim,

>Thanks for your comments in
>http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-comments/2003JanMar/0335.html
>on RDFCore's RDFS document. This message is a response to one issue
>you raised there on behalf of WebOnt, namely the request that we change
>the name to omit the word 'schema'.
>
>After some discussion, both email, telecon and face to face amongst those
>of us who were at WWWW2003, the working group decided on June 6th[1] not to
>accept this change. The cost of purging the phrase 'rdf schema' from use
>in our specs, in other W3C specifications, and from wider use is high. The
>working group did give serious consideration to making this change,
>but could not justify the cost given the stage we are at the development
>and deployment of this technology. As a result, we continue to
>use 'rdf schema' as the name for RDF Core's vocabulary description language.
>
>Please reply to this message as to whether this response is
>satisfactory, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org. Again, thank you for your
>comments.
