I just took a quick look at the new WD.

On thing that jumped out at me was:

  Section 2.2.6 ... RDF cannot prevent anyone from making ... inconsistent
		assertions, and applications that build upon RDF must find
		ways to deal with conflicting sources of information.

Contrast this with the RDF MT document:
  Section 2 ... This means that there is no such thing as an inconsistency
	    or a contradiction in RDF.

I'm pretty sure that both documents cannot be correct.
