It's a good question, and a hard one.  I have no recourse to fall back to the old dodge that determining what is core is an art and not a science.  My erotica is your porn.

But there is certainly room for common sense here.  As much as I find RDF I would be out of my skull to suggest mixing it into the core of XML.  I would have hoped for such restraint from the application-specific data typing folks.  I have no doubt they find their wizardry useful, and I'll even admit it is useful to me at times, but the whole is served better with proper modularity.
