hi Henry, 

>> Actually, It wasn't just clarification I was after .... because, I still don't think that the LDP interpretation of creation is that we are POSTing a Graph (which then gets grounded) - after all, a child isn't given whole to the mother. 
> The notion of notion relative-uri-graphs - "direct graphs" in [8] - is not the same as a the notion of a plain rdf-graph. If you want to use a metaphor of child and the mother, the child say being in the context of the mother's womb, and so dependent on it - then the "direct graphs" is such a thing.

... don't forget the important role of the father.
Accepted(202) for processing -> processing -> Created(201).

>> I prefer the function described in [5] as "providing a block of data, such as the result of submitting a form, to a data-handling process". Isn't form submission is a good model ? - and it would be good to read more discussion about the LDP equivalent of forms (?)

> The relative-uri-graph concept should help in explaining what is being exchanged between client and server semantically, without having to do this syntactically. This type of simplification could help make ldp a lot more general than other protocol specifications.

General question: with regards to "explaining what is being exchanged between client and server", what did you have in mind for your approach ? Advertising the type(s) of the resource which can be POSTed ?
