actually, I have no idea what the difference between 2.5 (closed 
lists) and 2.6 (ordered values) actually is - I had planned to 
propose to have 2.6 declared as subsumed by 2.5 -- that is, doesn't 
the new rdf solution with respect to list, first, rest, and nil give 
us this?   Peter says that he believes ordered property value is 
different from ordered lists -- Peter, can you elaborate this? 
Should we keep these as separate issues?
