Just to add my 0,02 Euros to what Jonathan is saying, it is probably
over simplistic, but I tend to see RDF as a XML generic syntax to
describe statements and Topic Maps as one of the applications that could
have used this syntax even though it is currently following its own

I feel therefore confused by a discussion that sounds somewhat similar
to discussing if one should live in a house or in a set of bricks :=)
