Re: Re: URIs, concrete


simon laurent why rdf uris
I'm aware that RDF uses namespaced attributes.

That doesn't bother me; I don't believe that there will be very many RDF
documents containing:

<rdf:Description rdf:about="http://www.w3.org"
about="http://www.w3.org/not/really/I'm/just/kidding/">

If people are crazy enough to do that, I guess I don't have very much
sympathy.
