And that is where we get into trouble specifying RDF as 
a fundamental requirement for new XML systems.  Timing is 
important to adoption.   If a requirement can be met 
without use of a new or emerging technology, that is 
usually the best way to go about specifying it.  Then 
keep an eye to the update schedule and any technologies 
that prove themselves in the interim and become ripe 
for adoption.

Don't play Bach when they came to boogie.

As for the first point, I think you really need a few years to see how 
successful a technology will be in the marketplace, and what problems it 
causes in practice. That's why I chose technologies I consider very well 

One of the ramifications of new technologies is you simply don't know right 
away how successful they will be. Personally, I think that XQuery and Web 
Services will also turn out to be real successes, but we shouldn't proclaim 
that until after the marketplace has adopted them.
