2 Day 2 (June 27) — Discussions

This is an evolving list of topics to be discussed in breakouts and/or plenary sessions. Feel free to make these be links to new wiki pages, to add details.

2.1 Feature Changes

  • Deprecations (suggest data producers avoid these)
    • reification (align with some "named graph" support)
    • rdf:Alt (just remove)
    • rdf:Bag (fix or remove)
    • rdf:Seq (use rdf:List instead)
    • rdf:value
    • xs:string (use plain literals instead)
    • rdf:XMLLiteral (use plain literals instead, with quoted XML)
    • rdf:ID (use rdf:about instead)
  • New Features
    • lists as first class entities
    • annotation framework
    • quads, n-quads
    • named graphs
    • RDF API

2.2 Semantics

  • change BNode semantics
  • adopt ter Horst semantics for RDFS
  • remove restrictions on bnode as predicates
  • remove restrictions on literals as subjects
  • removal of all semantics for RDFS
  • data constraints

2.3 Syntax and Protocols

  • Turtle/TriG
  • JSon
  • new XML syntax
  • Atom
  • change propagation
  • linked data radius (links + inference)

Draft text on IRIs

The Working Group will consider, in coordination with the I18N WG, the replacing of the term RDF URI Reference with an up-to-date reference to the IRI RFC.

2.4 Special Vocabularies

  • unordered lists
  • measurement units
  • identity management
  • n-ary relations
  • codifying "follow your nose"
