I've had offlist email from Guus saying that WEBONT was split on the 
question and would like another week.

I like your approach and would suggest the following modification.  I 
believe, that from an RDF point of view RDFCore has a preference - that is 
to remove the triples - I suggest we say that to WEBONT.

Therefore, would there be support for:


Send the following message to WEBONT:

RDFCore have received a last call comment [1] requesting that the triples:

   _:bnode rdf:type rdf:List .

be removed from the expansion of parseType="Collection" and the grounds 
that triples are often not required, create an unnecessary implementation 
overhead and can be easily inserted where required.

RDFCore are aware that the current OWL specs rely on the presence of these 
triples, but it has been suggested that this dependence could easily be 

RDFCore would prefer to accept the comment and remove the triples and 
therefore urge WEBONT remove their dependence on the presence of these triples.

We would be grateful for a speedy response to this request.

If we are not prepared to express such a preference, then the issue is moot 
and we should not accept the comment.
