Containers

As I was writing this book, the RDF Working Group issued a document titled “Refactoring RDF/XML Syntax” detailing modifications to the RDF Model and Syntax Specification. One of the major changes to the specification was a modification related to RDF containers, the subject of this section. However, since the recommended modifications were fairly extensive, they couldn’t be covered within a note.

I rewrote this section of the book only to have the Working Group somewhat reverse itself as to the legitimacy of containers—containers would be included in the RDF/XML syntax, but their meaning would be constrained.

To ensure a proper perspective of containers, the next section contains an overview of containers as they were modeled in the original specification; a section detailing the changes from the refactoring follows. Finally, at the end I summarize containers as they are understood in the newest release of the RDF Syntax Specification.
