The intended meaning was to include properties from linked data. I don't 
see the ambiguity. The goal is to avoid multiple GET calls.

[OSLC] Reporting Domain

Ref: http://open-services.net/bin/view/Main/ReportingHome 

One of the key requirements for a reporting consumer is what is being 
referred to as inlining. 
This was formerly named 'Self Contained XML' 

inlining - linked data should be inlined in the response to reduce the 
number of requests 

I believe that this description should be modified to avoid ambiguity and 

I think most people will understand that definition as meaning the data 
from linked resources rather than its intended meaning of a full set of 
self contained data being returned for the initial query (vs the common 
OSLC model of atomic transactions) 

I suggest modifying this definition as below: 

inlining - all queried data should be returned inline in the response with 
no need for further HTTP GET requests
