Re: possible DRAFT msg to TAG

Redraft: resolution was not put, so this is just a draft, for now.

Subject: httpRange-14

At our face-to-face meeting at the technical plenary the Semantic Web
Best Practices and Deployment WG resolved unaminously that:

   - an http URI without a hash MAY be used to identify an RDF property

where MAY is understood in terms of RFC 2119
and identify is understood in terms of RFC 3986

Our primary concern is:
    - deployed semantic web applications such as Dublin Core [1],
Friend-of-a-friend [2], Creative Commons [3], Adobe XMP [4], RSS 1.0 [5] 
that use such URIs

Other important concerns are:
    - the practical difficulty of using '#' namespace URIs for large
vocabularies such as wordnet
    - the impossibility of doing server side redirects on '#' URIs

This issue is impacting the work of the following SWBPD WG Task Forces:
    - Vocabulary Management
    - Porting Thesauri
    - WordNet
    - RDF/Topic Maps Interoperability
(see WG homepage for TF list and more information [6])

[1] DC URI
[3] CC URI
[4] Adobe XMP URI
[5] RSS 1.0 URI
