How does the RDF processor know that the rddl:resource is an rdf:type?
or that the rddl:prose content is an rdf:XMLLiteral?
Is there an RDF schema somewhere that asserts this?

More generally, can one use RDF schema to keep the author of an XML
document only minimally aware of the RDF underpinnings?
