   RDDL possibilities

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

If one is willing to accept that there may possibly be value in having
mixed human/machine-readable content at the end of a namespace-URI, RDDL
looks like a pretty good tool.

There was some discussion at XML 2001 about ways to improve RDDL, and
they seemed to come from two related directions:

1) Creating clusters of resources rather than a flat list

2) Describing sequences for resource processing to define pipelines

In some ways these are the same thing, just with sequence mattering in
the second version.  

I think it's roughly possible to do these using current RDDL syntax, but
I suspect it might be worth some further exploration of how best to make
these work.  Number 2 in particular could take RDDL much deeper into
computer interactions than has typically been the case so far.
