Re: ISSUE-58: PlainLiteral and TypedLiteral value for strings [RDFa 1.1 API]


You are the chair, and I of course defer to your decisions on this.  
However, I want to put on the record that I am pretty sure if a 
submitter wants to withdraw their comment, then according to the process 
we can pretend it never happened.  However, that might have been an 
XHTML 2 working group internal rule, and not a W3C rule.  In general (in 
roberts rules, for example) if the person who initiates a discussion 
withdraws their support (and if there was seconder, if that person also 
withdraws their support) then the discussion is killed.  If some one 
else thinks it is important, they have to raise it themselves.  This is 
done so that the people who really support an issue are the champion of 
that issue.  At least, that is my understanding.
