Ha, little endian.  We big-endians would say "RDF".  But regardless, there
still needs to be an application-specific vocabulary which can then be
incorporated into an RDF or Topic Map system.

So, to take my example.

<MyOriginElement xinclude:href="http://spam.com/doc.xml"
incstyle:href="http://spam.com/foo.xslt" incstyle:param="myvar='hello
world'" xmlns:incstyle="http://includestyling.xml.org/2000"/>

All you'd have to do for RDF incorporation (I'm just a newbie to XTM) is
wrap it in an <rdf:RDF> element and then you automagically have the
triples you want:

['MyOriginElement', 'http://www.w3.org/1999/XML/xinclude#href',
['MyOriginElement', 'http://includestyling.xml.org/2000#href',
['MyOriginElement', 'http://includestyling.xml.org/2000#param',
'myvar="hello world"']
