I'm sorry. That's not a concrete enough example 
to satisfy me. You've got an RDF tool doing RDF 
operations. That's a bit circular. What I want to 
see is an RDF tool that lets me order tickets for 
a concert, or close the books of the company at 
the end of the month, or find the right album 
cover to match a song in my MP3 player, or 
something practical that I want to do 
irrespective of whether it's done with RDF or XML 
or something else. How can RDF make my job of 
writing one of these applications (or some other 
useful application of your choice) easier?
