Hi David,

This is an official response from the RDF Working Group regarding your comment at [1] on the definition of "Generalized RDF".  Your comment is being tracked at our ISSUE-147 [2].

The WG discussed your concerns at our 2 Oct telecon [3] and via email [4].  Those discussions resulted in a decision to leave the definition of "generalized RDF" in RDF 1.1 Concepts, but to change the definition to the following:
Generalized RDF triples, graphs, and datasets differ from normative RDF triples, graphs, and datasets only by allowing IRIs, blank
nodes and literals to appear anywhere as subject, predicate, object or graph name.

My action to make the editorial changes was tracked at [5].

The updated section 7 is available in the current editors' draft [6].

Please advise the working group whether this change is acceptable to you by responding to this message.  Thank you for your participation.
