Richard, Antoine,

Yes, I just want the specs to make those pursuits (outlined above) much 
easier than they've been in the past. This means not having specs 
(overtly or covertly) conflate RDF and Linked Data. Personally, the past 
and current WIP RDF specs (as I read them) don't in anyway conflate 
these items. Most of the trouble comes from TimBL's tweak of his 
original (GOLDEN) Linked Data meme [1] which ended up being compromised 
by the addition of RDF and SPARQL to the document. In my travels re. 
Linked Data, this remains the prime source of RDF == Linked Data 
conflation and ensuing confusion.

As you know, the JSON-LD folks are also trying to reach the same point, 
but from time to time, they get hit the RDF == Linked Data conflation 


1. http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/LinkedData.html

2. http://lab.linkeddata.deri.ie/2010/star-scheme-by-example/ -- this is 
more in the spirit of TimBL's original GOLDEN meme and just needs 
"denotes" to replace "identify" for the whole matter to be fixed once 
and for all.
