I like the ideas of:
POI is a collection of links
POI needs some base primitives for easier use (label, links, locations, time)
POI support triples (a-v's) for unordered collections of facts

Thanks works for me from my daily use and implementation perspective

The label and the time fields are so natural to just stick in there. That brings us to location. The data URI seems awkward to me and likely to turn people off of the spec. However, I'm open to other opinions.

I like it too. Seems pretty much isomorphic to RDF, btw. Can it be
written out explicitly as a set of triples, eg. an unordered
collection of factoids that take one of these forms:

<thing1-URI> <propertytype-URI> "value " .


<thing1-URI> <propertytype-URI> <thing2-URI>.


If so, it should be possible to write out this datamodel using any RDF
notation, store/query it in any RDF database, etc.
