Subject Re: Clerezza, Stanbol, Jena, Semantic Commons, WDYT?

To make the commons discussion more concrete I would suggest the 
following  items for the commons:

- an IRI library
- some code to do with vocabularies.
- connecting to a URL and doing semweb aware content negotiation (this 
is typically done badly)

(Actually the IRI code should probably be wider, Jena initially used the 
xerces URI code but then the needs exceeded what they supported)
