Revisit XML Schema Datatypes in RDF and OWL?

XML Schema Datatypes in RDF and OWL is a W3C Working Group Note dated 14 March 2006:

Should it be updated with the update of XSD 1.1?

XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) 1.1 Part 1 (Structures) and Part 2 (Datatypes) have been moved to Proposed Recommendation: W3C XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) 1.1 Part 2: Datatypes

RDF and Time

Should the RDF data model include a concept of time? Pat has stated that it would be a complete rewrite of the model. David thinks we should not consider it and don't need to in order to support named graphs:

We will hold a discussion and straw poll on this issue.

Named Graphs

Sandro's use cases and proposed solutions

See message 4 Jan:

Sandro's reflection about UC3:

Gavin's Thinking on Endorsement use case

Need for more examples:

  • concrete actions

Possible straw polls:

  • relevance of UC3
  • preference for the three designs
  • meta-strawpoll to whether we can/are willing to decide on (dis)allowing bnodes in 4th slot

Need for more test cases

  • concrete actions

This week: Look at the solutions proposed.
