Dear Jeni,

Thank you for your comment 
on the RDFa 1.1 drafts. 

The issue that you raise has been a topic of discussion in the Working Group when the new @profile mechanism was worked out, and similar concerns were raised by several members of the group. It was, however, felt that the advantages offered by the @profile solution were more important than the real dangers this solution incurred, and hence the group decided to adopt the mechanism nevertheless.

Your comment, however, did offer a way forward that the group did not think about originally, namely the possibility not to generate any triples in case a @profile file cannot be reached. Your proposal was added to our official issue list[1], was discussed yesterday on our Working Group meeting[2], and was unanimously approved[3]. The detailed wording will be part of our next Working Draft release (you can see the formal resolution at [3]).

I hope this solution answers your concerns; the group also thanks you for the additional insight and ways to move ahead. 

Please acknowledge receipt of this email to <mailto:public-rdfa-wg@w3.org> (replying to this email should suffice). In your acknowledgment please let us know whether or not you are satisfied with the working group's response to your comment.
