> Hi,
I was looking at geonames the other day... If you look at the RDF for England:

> http://sws.geonames.org/6269131/about.rdf
> you'll see it has a parentFeature relationship that points to UK (fair enough).
But, the childrenFeatures relationship then points to an RDF file

> http://sws.geonames.org/6269131/contains.rdf
that contains a list of features. This seems (to me) to be a very odd way of doing things? Anyone else?
