I don't agree that RDF is contaminating XML; the two technologies simply
have different semantics and processing - i.e. for URIs (consider
fragment identifiers for example; RDF is incapable of preserving the
partition) and some people may be using namespaces in RDF to denote or
point to schemas/vocabularies.

.. while it does seem to handle URIs in a more reasonable way, mostly to
it's retreive-oriented semantics (apart from namespaces).

I dissagree. Inline inclusion of documents cannot be replaced by
framesets and iframes provide a much better and predictable interface to
ECMAScript and URLs pointing to e.g. images, than XInclude would ever will.
