RDF-ISSUE-11 (Reconciliation of documents): Reconciliation of various, semantics-oriented documents with the core RDF ones [Cleanup tasks]

Raised by: Ivan Herman
On product: Cleanup tasks

Since 2004 a number of W3C documents were published that had an effect (extension) on the "core" RDF semantics but they may have gone unnoticed because spread over. The WG may consider folding these into the core RDF documents at least by reference. These are:

- RDF Plain Literal[1] added a new datatype into the RDF namespace
- POWDER's IRI Set Semantics[2] defines an extension to the core RDF Semantics by defining a "bridge" between URI-s as resources and URI-s as strings
- SPARQL 1.1's[3] upcoming Entailment Regimes document defines a finite 'sub-semantics' for RDF[4] and RDFS[5]; these are restricted semantics that can be handled with a rule engine in a finite manner. The practical importance of these clearly go beyond SPARQL...
