ISSUE-171: URI-s generated for microdata attribute values

microdata-rdf

URI-s generated for microdata attribute values

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Microdata
Raised by:
Sam Ruby
Opened on:
2011-08-26
Description:
This issue was raised on behalf of Raphaël Troncy, based on the following bug: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=12713

----

The microdata document includes a separate section (section 5.2) on how the
microdata information should mapped on RDF. It includes design choices
regarding the URI-s generated for microdata attribute values in case those
values are not absolute URI-s. The current specifications lead to URIs of the
form (using the example in the document)

http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/microdata#http://microformats.org/profile/hcard%23:adr%20street-address

Using such URI-s for data originating, in this example from a microformat is
unnecessary complicated, and puts an extra strain on any RDF representation of
the microdata vocabulary. It would also cast the
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml/microdata# string as part of that RDF
representation for no good technical reason and would make the resulting URI-s
either not dereferencable (which is contrary to the requirements set up, for
example, in the Linked Open Data community) or would put an extra and
unnecessary strain on the w3c server to set up and maintain such dereferencing
service.
