  I will go on public record with a message I sent to the Members Only 
CG a while ago (Brian McBride sent a pointer along to RDF Core as

Given Pat's latest document, I think we are closer to resolving the

above until we record a decision to use Pat's approach to the MT 
w/respect to layering (or decide not to)
