   RE: [xml-dev] Are URIs Resources? (WAS RE: [xml-dev] Re: Non-infoset)

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Which means RDF introduces ambiguity.  If a URI is opaque, 
it is always possible for the writer to introduce ambiguity 
when it relies solely on URIs (the URI isn't a resource 
so it's information semantics aren't available).

URI space parallels information space in a Euclidean definition.

It makes no sense because it isn't true. It explicitly *DOES* use URIs
in precisely these two ways. See for example


Now from what I've read about RDF it seems that too uses URIs in these
different ways, but fails to make the distinction, so you can never be
sure whether a statement talks about a document or about the subject of
the document.
