Telecon report - 2005-07-19

The call was brief.  Bernard raised an issue that I would
like to capture in this report:  Should the VM note say anything 
more than (paraphrasing): "Tell the potential users who owns
the URI space and how the URIs are being maintained"?

Specifically, maintainers of multilingual vocabularies may
want guidance on how to form URIs. For example:  can extended
characters or Unicode used in URIs?

Also: Is it good practice to put natural language (words) into
URI strings?  Is it not confusing to say, on the one hand, that 
URI strings are opaque and then, on the other, to imply they are
not by using words?

Should the VM note take a position on these issues?
