No it hasn't, but there's a good chance it will. It will probably be
the ultraminimal version as in http://www.tbray.org/tag/rddl4.html -
there will probably be a canonical mapping to RDF.
The W3C will probably not decree the use of RDDL, rather there will be a
TAG finding saying "Here are the issues about namespace documents, and
if you want to have them, here's one data format that is appropriate."
