ISSUE-217: Further clean up of paths versus predicate

Path vs predicate clean up

Further clean up of paths versus predicate

SHACL - Core
Raised by:
Holger Knublauch
Opened on:
Two small issues related to property paths were recently reported:


is about the overlap of sh:predicate and sh:path in property constraints.

PROPOSAL: Limit sh:path to blank nodes, i.e. its values must be paths, not predicate IRIs.


is about paths in validation reports

PROPOSAL: Rename sh:resultPath to sh:resultPredicate and limit it to IRIs.
