Since you are already implementing this, you have already worked out
the rules by which who gets to say what about the namespace. RDDL would
just be a replacement for your "plain vanilla XML" and wherever you
have an XML document you could replace that with a RDDL document. RDDL
is just a simple extension of XHTML -- that is you create documentation
of the namespace readable by humans using HTML and readable by your
program using the RDDL extension vocabulary.
