CTM - Issues for the ISO meeting Kyoto 2007
Item identifier syntax
For item identifiers a new marker (
') was introduced.
Action: Needs approval from WG and TMQL-editors. Related TMQL issue: tmql-item-references
Multiline comments were introduced
(: comment :).
Action: Needs approval from WG and TMQL-editors.
CTM uses a tilde (
~) to introduce the reifying topic. TMQL uses a slightly different
<~) and uses the tilde as axis shortcut.
Action: Is the difference acceptable?
CTM provides a mechanism to import templates. In Montreal was a request to remove this feature and to unify the functionality with the "include" directive. The editors were unable to follow that request because this unification led to problems with "prefix" declarations.
Action: Unification required or is the determination acceptable?
CTM introduced the
null literal again.
Action: The definition / semantics of
null must be provided from TMQL.
Related TMQL issue: tmql-undef-vs-null
Angle brackets around IRIs
We introduced an "angle brackets" syntax for IRIs.
Action: TMQL should reintroduce IRIs which are embedable into angle brackets. Related TMQL issue: tmql-iri-ambiguity
