Empty local name issue in N3


Dear all,

According to the N3 grammar, the local names should at least contain one character:


        cfg:canStartWith     "a", "_", ":".  # @@ etc unicode


- This is in contrast to Turtle, which should be a subset of N3.

- Empty local names are commonly used, for example the object of rdfs:isDefinedBy

- CWM and SPARQL do accept empty local names.

Proposal: Allow empty local names in N3

The use of empty local names was mentioned before by Luc Peuvrier on 7 Mar 2009 on this mailing list.
This mail was sent before but appeared to be 'unreadable'.
