Just to follow-up on a previous thread (see below), I'd like to propose 
adding a new purpose (http://www.rddl.org/purposes#target) for RDDL.

The target of a RDDL document could then be documented (non normative 
example) as:

<rddl:resource id="target"
       xlink:title="target namespace"
   <div class="resource">
      <h3>Target namespace</h3>
        <p>This RDDL document is describing the namespace
