      Hi Mark,

      this is a comment onthe section

      "Form" and "method" of http://www.markbaker.ca/2003/05/RDF-Forms/

      You present the RDF below as an alternative to the rf:Container
      example appearing earlier in the text.

      <rf:Form rf:method="POST"
      xmlns:rf="http://www.markbaker.ca/2003/rdfforms/"
      xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"
      rdf:about="http://shoes.example.com/order-processor/">
      <rf:acceptedMediaType>application/rdf+xml</rf:acceptedMediaType>
      </rf:Form>

      You mention the problem that rf:method suggests that the processor
      implements the POST method.

      I have two additional questions:

      The RDF also asserts that the processor is of rdf:type rf:Form, which
      also does not seem to be the intended semantic, yes?

      What is the intention of the rf:Form in general? What does it tell
      the client that cannot be accomplished with the existing
      (rf:Container etc.) mechanism already?

      You write (regarding rf:method):

      "The intended interpretation is that the method be considered as a
      descriptor of this instance of the form itself - which is why the use
      of rdf:type in Container/Indexable/Settable was appropriate."

      I have trouble understanding what this gets at, can you explain?

      Thanks.

      Jan
