postponed. @@make this a class.

30 re issue: #rdf-ns-prefix-confusion

Connolly: so the language doesn't contain these documents. Good. that's clear. Connolly: licensing processors to accept documents that aren't in the language is risky... the user community learns what the language is by what the tools do. [... scribe is discussing too much to do a good job recording; help? ] EricM: there's a requirement for syntactic inclusion in HTML. BillD: I think we need to fix productions 4, 5, and 9 DaveB: I listed a bunch of productions in item2 of the proposal... BillD: let's make it clear that folks MUST NOT use unprefixed resource/about/.. attrs. em notes that he may have overstated earlier requirements as there is no specified requirement of syntactic inclusion in M&S Specification. item 7 is withdrawn; change is incorporated into item 2. ArtB: so you're changing production 6.19 so that the prefix is not optional? DaveB: yes. ArtB: do folks realize there might be a lot of RDF out there in this form? several: yes. BillD: this looks like an erratum then; the grammar had a typo. EricM: let's note this in both places: the errata and the developers page. BrianM: DaveB's proposal should be couched in terms of 'namespace qualified' rather than 'namespace prefixed'. scribe note: "prefixed" doesn't occur in the RDF 1.0 spec. DaveB: I have 7 tests.
