W3C Submissions

Team Comment on URISpace Submission

W3C is pleased to recieve the URIspace submission from Akamai.

The URIspace specification gives a vocabulary of XML elements for describing patterns of URIs; this vocabulary would be mixed with other vocabularies that associate metadata with URIs. It relates to the following W3C Activities:

In the RDF Interest Group, which tracks RDF experience, applications, and deployment an issue has been opened requesting clarification about the aboutEachPrefix mechinism from RDF, which is similar to URIspaces.
Appendix C of the URIspace specification suggests an alternative way to use URIspaces with P3P, not compliant with P3P version 1 as specified.

See also: WebDAV RFC2518 section 5 Collections of Web Resources.

Next Steps

The submission will be brought to the attention of the RDF Interest Group and the P3P Specification Working Group.
