Hi Peter,

The wording of this definition looks good to me, but why are you opposed 
to moving it to the RDF Semantics document?  AFAICT, the term is not 
used in the RDF Concepts document, but it *is* used in the RDF Semantcs 
document.  Also, moving it to RDF Semantics would give it less 
visibility, which (to my mind) would be appropriate given that standard 
RDF is what the W3C is intending to promote, rather than generalized RDF.

Hi David,

This is an official response from the RDF Working Group regarding your 
comment at [1] on the definition of "Generalized RDF".  Your comment is 
being tracked at our ISSUE-147 [2].

The WG discussed your concerns at our 2 Oct telecon [3] and via email 
[4].  Those discussions resulted in a decision to leave the definition 
of "generalized RDF" in RDF 1.1 Concepts, but to change the definition 
to the following:
Generalized RDF triples, graphs, and datasets differ from normative RDF 
triples, graphs, and datasets only by allowing IRIs, blank
nodes and literals to appear anywhere as subject, predicate, object or 
graph name.

My action to make the editorial changes was tracked at [5].

The updated section 7 is available in the current editors' draft [6].

Please advise the working group whether this change is acceptable to you 
by responding to this message.  Thank you for your participation.
