Re: Resource Gloss (Human Readable)

Granted, but I thought that the RDDL proposal was intended for use outside
of namespaces as well.  The crux of the RDDL spec is the directory/links
IM(very)HO. I thought one of the initial hopes of this spec was to be able
to utilize the directory in various contexts-- even as a document fragment.
This is still possible it just requires the inclusion of the XHTML
namespace.  While plopping the directory in a browser is easy-- it is very
namespace oriented-- suppose there is only an XPath expression to an element
in a document which is not namespace oriented-- must there be a human
readable form there as well?

Thanks again,
