[URGENT] 2nd Last Call Issues

From: Manu Sporny <msporny@digitalbazaar.com>

Message-ID: <4D8CCBA3.4000809@digitalbazaar.com>
To: RDFa WG <public-rdfa-wg@w3.org>
As explained here, there is an issue with XML+RDFa:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdfa-wg/2011Mar/0100.html

We need to make a number of proposals and resolve them as a working
group in order to proceed to Last Call. This IS NOT a vote - it is a
straw poll for consensus. We need at least 5 people in the RDFa WG to +1
each of these items to proceed. If someone -1s any of these proposals,
please explain why. We need to accomplish the following:

 * Modify the processing rules to assume an about="" on the root
   element.
 * Note that this decision overrules the decision we made yesterday.
 * Adjust the publication date to next Thursday - it would be kinda
   jerk-y of us to ask W3C Pubs to only have one day to review our
   request.

So here goes, make sure to +1/+0/-1 each proposal item:

---------------------------------------------------------------------

PROPOSAL: The RDFa Core processing rules should be modified in a way
that ensures that the root element assumes an about="" if no @about is
specified. For example, the following text could accomplish this:

"""
In section 7.5, processing step 6, if no URI is provided by an @about
attribute, then first check to see if the element is the root element.
If it is, then act as if there is an empty @about present, and process
it according to the rule for @about.

In section 7.5, processing step 7, if no URI is provided by an @about
attribute, then first check to see if the element is the root element.
If it is, then act as if there is an empty @about present, and process
it according to the rule for @about.
"""

---------------------------------------------------------------------

PROPOSAL: The decision to assume an empty @about="" on root elements
overrides the decision made on March 24th 2010:
http://www.w3.org/2010/02/rdfa/meetings/2011-03-24#resolution_2

---------------------------------------------------------------------

PROPOSAL: RDFa Core 1.1 and XHTML+RDFa 1.1 should be modified to include
the empty @about="" on root elements decision and should then proceed
into the 2nd Last Call with a publication date targeted at March 31st
with a Last Call period of 3 weeks from the publication date.
