Naming Context

What the #linkeddata world needs now is a standard way to name and refer to the context of utterance of the data which flows on the newly burgeoning semantic web. 

We should have a standard way to refer to a collection of triples.  In other words a collection of triples should have a URI.  That name should be designated in a triple in the collection.  Perhaps something like ...
  • {  <these-triples> namedBy <ID-URI> }
  • This one triple provides the necessary information for unfolding triples into quads
  • <these-triples> is a standard URI which refers to all the triples in the current container, whether that be  a document or feed or whatever process can actually be used to dereference and obtain triples.  It should be defined within a w3c  namespace.
  • namedBy is a standard RDF property URI defined within a w3c namespace.
  • <ID-URI> is the URI which identifies the triples in that container.  It is what we put in the context slot of a quads store when we get those triples.
Current work on this by w3c now scoped here ... and discussion on twitter #rdfn .

I sure hope that they don't over think this ... see this.  It's really simple, you need a way to express quads in  triples ... and you need a way to designate the extra context uri when you read triples into quads.

When you have N3, you get namedgraphs for free. Why reinvent them? #rdfn #n3
...

#rdfn the context of triples should be named like "<these-triples> namedBy <ID-URI>" http://bit.ly/aNfZGq ... is this happening?
...

Seth says
Finally RDF contexts may get some sort of formal acceptance ...  refer to fb.
