I wanted to raise a point about an example application (6.2 PRISM) given in
the RDF Primer. It is my understanding that no RDF schemas have yet been
defined by the PRISM Working Group for use with the PRISM term sets, which
from an RDF POV would render the this application less than optimal.

I have earlier developed an RDF schema for the main PRISM term set and
shared this with a couple of members of the Working Group to get their
feedback. This RDF schema was announced on this list a few months back, see


The RDF schema is currently lodged at


I am wondering if this lack of RDF schemas undermines the PRISM example
application in the Primer in any way, whether the Primer actually cares if
the applications it discusses are generally useful, and also whether the
draft RDF schema I prepared might be accommodated at some more central
resource repository if it were to be judged of use and after any review.

The decision to advance these documents to last call is minuted at:

The RDFCore WG seeks feedback from all, but in particular requests
feedback from:

XML Core   (handling of xml:base)
XML Schema (datatypes solution)
URI        (handling of xml:base)
XHTML      (relating RDF meta data to XHMTL web pages)
SVG        (relating RDF meta data to SVG web pages)
XMLP       (Carrying RDF over XMLP)

As per W3C process the RDFCore WG would like to draw attention to the
formal objections against these WD's listed at:


The RDFCore WG would also like to draw attention to one aspect of these
specifications about which there has not been universal consensus,
though no formal objection has been received.  The WG seeks particular
feedback on the handling of whitespace processing of datatype values.
