I do, being in both groups. HOwever I don't expect that the Core WG 
will want to consider any large changes to RDF right now, as it is 
late and badly wants to get to a conclusion and wrap-up, and has far 
too much on its plate already. So I expect the best we can hope for 
is a recommendation that RDF be 'fixed' by the next WG in version 2. 
Bu that might well be good enough for Webont to move forward, I think.
