I'm at the RIF F2F, and we just had a WG resolution to go for beer, so I

addressed before the next publication.

In 3.3:

    like we're breaking backward compatibility.    So either I'm
    misreading (and the text needs to be changed) or we have a bigger

I would also like some acknowledgement that some systems do
"auto-imports", where they perform imports based on the URIs used in the
document (especially as names for classes and properties), even when no
imports directive is present.  We don't need to pass judgement on this
