Thanks! It's certainly not my intention to make RDF a taboo topic on
XML-DEV.  RDF and XML are highly complimentary to one another. Although
not all RDF developers will consider themselves XML developers (and
vice-versa), there are a number of interesting issues that we've touched
on in XML-DEV discussions which I hope continue to be explored on the XML
list. In particular, the proposal that XSchema be expressable in an RDF
nodes-and-arcs model is intriguing, and a topic probably more suited to
xml-dev than to rdf-dev. Mapping XSchema-described instance data into the
RDF data model is another interesting topic (or holy grail...) that sits
naturally with xml-dev. The detail of how we split discussion topics
across the two lists is something that'll evolve with time. I'll post a
longer scope note for rdf-dev in the week, but am very open to
