The concept is an API. If it has a URI, great. If it can be
resolved, excellent. If I get a choice as to what representation of
the resource I want, even better.
I'm not sure RDDL is the right thing, as currently scoped
as a "namespace document" -- but the idea of a resolved URI
providing an index of descriptive representations of
a concept/resource ... is appealing.

A wsdl document, while technically readable by people
and machines, isn't always going to be the most
appropriate representation of a "web service" api.
I'd rather read http://www.fedora.info/definitions/1/0/api/
The vision as I see it is, starting with a single URI, a
person/machine should be able to make the decision on which
representation is most appropriate.

I see that no one's replied to this question yet again. I'm still not
entirely sure why I'd want to use RDDL to identify WSDL resources, since
it seems to some extent that WSDL performs similar tasks (identifiying
structures and processing) to RDDL.
Could you explain this one a bit more?
