     * Update - open issues
           o Plesae come prepared to offer strong feelings on any of 
these issues. Issues without strong feelings will be left to the wisdom 
of the editor.
           o DELETE syntax is ambiguous. should statements be separable 
with optional semicolons? Or is another syntax option better?
           o ISSUE-20
                 + Paul says: Are there differences between an empty 
graph and a non-existent graph? I like to think so, but didn't see a 
consensus. This issue affects the need for CREATE and DROP graph 
operations, and controls whether or not INSERT/DELETE control graph 
           o Do we have a resolution to the question of whether blank 
nodes are permissible in the template for DELETE?
           o ISSUE-51 Shall dataset clauses be allowed in SPARQL/Update?
           o (Other issues are not demanding of teleconference time at 
the moment.)

           o HTTP Update Protocol
           o Property Paths
           o Query
           o Entailment
