I've gone ahead and made this change.

Note that the URIs selected for use in  
and were not selected with a great deal  
of discussion.

For example, the URI for the nature of an "ISO specification" was  
selected to be but I fully realize that this might be problematic  
and and ambiguous ... I accept all blame for selecting this URI. I am  
not AT ALL attached to this selection. This was the first time since  
2001 that I have been made aware of an issue this this selection and  
I am perfectly happy to change the URI to something more  
appropriate ... suggestions?

Regarding the URI for the nature of an RFC ... ditto. Of note, I  
though it was slightly clever to use the URI pointing to a document  
which describes the RFC process ... along the self documenting web  
idea. If this URI is not appropriate for the "nature of an RFC" I am  
willing to change it ... again... suggestions?

To summarize ... and 
purposes/ was NOT intended as an end all nor be all compendium of  
natures and purposes rather as a self documenting bootstrap. It is  
not intended that rddl:nature nor rddl:purpose be limited to URIs  
referenced in these documents.

The core idea behind the RDDL spec is to be self describing so I was  
trying to use URIs that would dereference to documents describing the  
appropriate "nature".

Finally, I have not received any feedback on the proposed revision of  
RDDL to incorporate the "rddl:nature" and "rddl:purpose" attributes.  

(this document needs more work but gives you the idea of what is  
being proposed ... namely allowing <a rddl:nature="..."  
rddl:purpose="..."> in addition to what is already in RDDL 1.0)

is this something anyone has a strong feeling about (Tim and I are in  
favor if that counts).
