We seem to have a number of normative dependencies among the different standards-to-be that we will have to check and be careful about; these may become a hurdle when we want to advance the documents.

- Turtle has a normative dependency on RDF1.1 Concepts[1]
- JSON-LD has a normative dependency on RDF1.1 Concepts and, conceptually, on RDF1.1 Schemas[2]
- RDF 1.1 has normative dependencies on HTML5 and DOM4[3,4] (thanks to Markus for making me realize)

Clearly, the third one is the most painful one, in particular DOM4. There are indeed some arrangements for HTML5 dependencies that we may be able to call on (we have to prove that whatever we depend on already pass the HTML5 CR exit criteria and/or is stable enough because all browsers already do it the way we need it) but, afaik, we do not have a similar arrangement with DOM4. The Turtle and JSON-LD dependencies are our own, so we may be able to control it.

Something to discuss.


P.S. B.t.w., HTML5+RDFa also has a dependency on RDF 1.1 Concepts, due to rdf:HTML, that the RDFa WG has to handle somehow...
