That is part of a general unsolved problem having to do with "How do you know when there are (no) more relevant RDF statements?" In this case, the example is taking a "closed world" assumption that says "No instances of MaritalStatus exist except the ones created in this RDF document." In other cases, of course, an "open world" assumption prevails. Hopefully some mechanism for indicating closure will eventually be created. -- John Cowan http://www.ccil.org/~cowan cowan@c...
