you raised an issue which was captured in



The lack of a formal semantics for RDF and RDFS make it difficult to 
construct systems with formal semantics on top of it.

As recorded in


the RDFCore WG resolved:

   that the model theory defines formal semantics for RDF and that this 
issue be closed.

Please could you respond to this message, copying www-rdf-comments@w3.org 
indicating whether this is an acceptable resolution of this issue.
