Phil agrees 

4. Message from DAWG [Ralph]

ACTION: Guus to contact someone regarding "source response" issue 
ACTION: Ralph to report back to dawg that we can't figure out what the 
"unsaid" problem is precisely 

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-swbp-wg/2005Jan/0053.html DAWG 
request for input on two of their open issues that are comsuing a lot of 
time, considering defering them.  DAWG has asked SWBP to look at the 
issues and comment whether there is enough experience "out there" to put 
in rec. Issues are : 
"Source Response" (determining the origin of a triple) 
"Unsaid" whether a query should be able to specify that something is 
unsaid i.e. if a triple is not there 
DAWG interested in use cases 
there is a link in Ralph's email and contact information 

Ralph: DAWG f2f is [19-20 Jan] , very useful to get feeback by then 
Chris: in the PML work we have found that representing the source of a 
triple in RDF is hard, because since triples don't have URIs, you have to 
go outside RDF.
Ralph: any experiences with this would probably be appreciated 
jjc: I believe HP has some implementations 
AlanR: we have apps that use closed world queries.  Makes it much harder 
if you don't have it. (Assuming this is talking about a negation as 
failure type closure)
Guus: we use it, too
