The W3C (via QNames, URIs uber alles, and now RDDL/RDF) and various
people (Liam Quin, for instance) who seem to suggest on a regular basis
that adding RDF to the core of XML would improve it.

I have no qualms at all about people using RDF for projects.  I have
serious qualms about the amount of damage that the URI cult has already
inflicted on XML and the potential amount of damage that can still be
inflicted.  Unfortunately, RDF plays directly into that.

http://simonstl.com may be my URI
http://monasticxml.org may be my ascetic URI
urn:oid: is another possibility altogether
