comment on rdf:text: A Datatype for Internationalized Text

On May 12, during a joint meeting of the XML Query WG and the XSL WG, we 
discussed both rdf:text: A Datatype for Internationalized Text and the 
comment submitted by Michael Sperberg-McQueen [1].

We share the concern raised in Michael's first comment, labeled "Typo in 
two namespace names?". In section 2, Preliminaries, of your specification, 
we see:
        - the prefix name fn: stands for

In our Functions and Operators [2], in section 1.2, Namespaces and 
Prefixes, we say:

The URIs of the namespaces and the default prefixes associated with them 

    * for constructors -- associated with 
    * for functions -- associated 
with fn.
    * -- associated with err.

                                                -- Andrew
