Explanation of a puzzling choice by the author, following
Gen-ART review comment by Joel Halpern:

Several of the attributes have a type of "atomURI".  However, reading the text carefully, it is clear that they are actually IRIs.  I suspect that those have the same syntax.  But since they have different semantics, it seems odd for the syntax definition to refer to atomURI rather than atomIRI.

I noticed that the namespace http://purl.org/syndication/thread/1.0 is
not an SDO.  I want to confirm that we hae sufficient control over
this specification that we have change control for the future.

  I agree.  Can you provide a pointer to a description of the other
  aspects of a total solution?
