What does what I am doing with RDDL have to do with what you are saying? You
started this discussion. To quote you:

    "This wins with no question, I think. And I think
    the buzzword should be not RDF, but RDDL
    ( not the current version, sorry ;-( ). "

So what is the future version? What are you talking about. You say you have
explained yourself but I still have no idea what you are talking about. You
have trouble explaining yourself in words, so explain yourself in another
way, code, a formula, you pick.

If it is trivial, then let's see it. I ask this only because I just can't
understand your text. Perhaps you are better at explaining yourself in code?
I am not questioning your ability to code, rather your ability to explain
