Okay -- I will so consider.

My friend's name is "Niel", which is short for Nathaniel. :>

Yeah,  I meant to convey "write a program to process...". I'll make
this change.

I *think* (didn't entirely understand this myself) because one for
each of his personae and one for *him*... But I may have misunderstood
what Alberto was getting at.

Alberto: is that correct?

Will do.

I'll hunt for something.

Yes, I'm not entirely happy with this, either. But is there a graph
term for 'source'? 

4.2.1 is meant to offer a local gloss on 'repository' -- at
least, the last two sentences of the first paragraph of 4.2.1 are.

Yes, that's me being too twee, I suspect. I proposed 4.9 because I
wanted a (1) query form explicitly for asking yes-no questions (which
in SPARQL is called "ASK..."); and (2) I wanted explicit on-the-wire
representations of boolean values, rather than treating "no solutions"
as false and "1 or more solutions" as true.

Does that help? If so, should some of that be included?

Thanks for the careful review, Pat.
