Hi Thomas, SWD,

This is a short answer to a longer mail (see below).

Thanks again for taking your time reviewing the document.

As suggested by Thomas, I would prefer letting you have the time to 
briefly discuss this on the 8-9th October F2F in Amsterdam (wishing you 
a productive meeting!), summing up the SWD findings towards SWEO's "Cool 
Uris for the Semantic Web". No hurry, things take time.

We are already reading the reviews, but they are many and we wait until 
all proposed changes are collected (TimBl and the TAG have also given 
some feedback in other mails).


It was Thomas Baker who said at the right time 26.09.2007 20:50 the 
following words:

>> That would help us to know what we must do. If not, we would at least
