As part of our consensus review we asked RDF Core [1]

and they have now responded with the below.  They ask us whether the 
decision is acceptable, and since this was a consensus review I 
believe we owe a consensus response.  Wearing my chair hat, I suggest 
we as a WG should consider this an acceptable decision - there was 
not a strong feeling on the part of the WG when we discussed the 
review that this was a "drop dead" issue.  If anyone feels strongly 
that this is not an acceptable response, please let me and the WG 
know (on our mailing list) and we can discuss.
