Dear Carlos, Bernadette, and all.

We need to remember this document is about the best practices for data *on
the web*, and not best practices for data on the internet.

Considering this, IMO any technologies mentioned in the World Wide Web
Architecture [1] document should NOT be technology agnostic on the DWBP.
That includes terms such as HTTP, URLs and URIs, which should be
specifically and explicitly addressed (and not just IDs and protocols in

As for the technological bias regarding the SW and LD, how about moving the
parts that are specific about those to separate, non-normative sections
dedicated to publishing LD? I agree that they could be confusing for LD
outsiders, but I still think those could be useful practices when
publishing LD, and there's no point on having a separate "Linked Data on
the Web Best Practices", or is there?

Hi Carlos,

Thank you very much for your detailed review of the BP document! We're
gonna review the document again and we're gonna try to remove as much
as possible the techonological bias that you mentioned in your
comments. Some parts of the text were changed already, but we're gonna
make another review.

I have a comment about vocabularies and data models, but I'm gonna
discuss this in a more appropriate thread, ok?
