Me too ;-)

If the RD* file didn't have a natural interpretation within the RDF
model I'd be rather worried though, since we're basically talking about
a bunch of typed, annotated links pointing to typed
Web-addressable resources. FWIW I'll be putting XHTML and RDF at most
of my namespaces and could really do with a vocabulary for pointing to
Java classes, XML schemata, public keys, XSLTs and suchlike to include

So what about Resource Description Resource?
