Charles and Doug,

I'm disappointed that you both 'forgot' to either point me to, or  
acknowledge the contributions made by me to Clipboard Operations for  
the Web 1.0: Copy, Paste, Drag and Drop :-(.

I did raise the issue of copying and pasting SVG with you both and  
Chris, many years ago**
It's a great pity application developers have been so slow to meet  
this need.

I also note that there is no mention of RDF.
as you will know there is good evidence from microformats that  
copying and pasting metadata or links to metadata is gaining popularity.
It might be helpful if W3 developed documentation describing how this  
might be achieved with RDF*.

hoping to catch up with you both in a f2f in the near future, make  
sure to be fully alert and armed.

kind regards


Jonathan Chetwynd

*my apologies if there is a separate RDF copy and paste document, I  
rarely look for or at specs due to the language and presentation
