RFC 3986 is neutral to RDF or linked data.  The fact it puts a blocker 
to a perfectly reasonable, although arguably whether it's properly 
RESTful [*], use of POST is a bit of a nuisance (tm).

Relative linked data needs to address the reasons RDF is built on 
absolute IRIs.  It's a different UC to Alexandre's but it's still a 
valid one.


[*] Most RESTful would be to POST the entry for the container to add, 
not rely on an action to a different resource elsewhere.

PS The charter says "RDF" as one of the two technologies to combine.
