ISSUE-103: Make dereferenceable IRIs a SHOULD in RDF Concepts

Make dereferenceable IRIs a SHOULD in RDF Concepts

State:
CLOSED
Product:
RDF Concepts
Raised by:
Markus Lanthaler
Opened on:

Description:
Lately there haven been quite some discussions about what formats are valid Linked Data. Everyone agreed that at least RDF is certainly one of them. Nevertheless, nowhere in RDF Concepts there's a normative statement that IRIs SHOULD be dereferenceable which is the core principle of Linked Data. The only statement I found about this is

"A good way of communicating the intended referent to the world is to set up the IRI so that it dereferences[WEBARCH] to such a document."

I would thus like to propose that a normative statement like the following is added to RDF Concepts:

"When deferenced, IRIs SHOULD return an RDF Document that describes the denoted resource by means of RDF statements."
