Dear TAG,

this article has kick-started a dicussion about concept-identifiers and 
questions of dereferencing URIs,
but still I would love to get feedback from members of the TAG regarding 
the W3C issues.

I would like to know if we can use the article "cool URIs for the 
Semantic Web" [2] in public websites of the W3C (such as the SWEO 
website[3]) to illustrate the intentions of the TAG [1], or if the TAG 
disagrees with parts of the paper and we should not use this article as 
introductionary material for the Semantic Web.

given the intrinsic problem of the topic, blessing this paper as an 
official summary of TAG decisions [1], or pointing out where the paper 
contradicts TAG, would perhaps help in the ongoing discussions.

This is not urgent, if needed I could approach you individually.

best regards
