   URI confusions, clarifications

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

This is probably a worthy (and recent) addition to discussions about
URIs and their place in the Web Architecture etc.:



RDFCore would like the TAG to clarify and define the foundations of the
architecture of the web. The concept of a resource is fundamental to web
architecture, yet it is very hard to pin down exactly what it means and
how it relates to the concepts of URI, URI reference and XML namespace.
The RDF community has, for some time, found this uncertainty has led to
protracted discussions which rarely resolve. RDFCore is defining a
formal model for the semantics of RDF, but is hampered in this effort by
the lack of a formal model for these core web concepts.


A number of specific requests follow.  Hammering these issues out will
be difficult if actually attempted, but it might reduce the level of
confusion if addressed seriously.
