Hi All, 

A couple of questions for the group:

1) I wonder if there is a place already on the wiki for capturing "other issues", the miscellaneous ones basically? For example, the URIRef vs IRI issue. 

2) And whether or not the RDFa spec[1] is in or out of scope of this working group, as it is not listed in the charter as one of the documents which the group will be looking to update[1]? The reason I mention this is again, if we end up in a world where both SPARQL and RDF (lets say the Turtle serialisation) are using IRIs, developers would have to use a different URI encoding library for SPARQL & Turtle, from the one they would be using if there were to be serialising to RDFa. 


Mischa *goes off to look into the back-compatibility of URIRefs to IRIs (any pointers existing work comparing the definitions would be much appreciated)
