Not really.  RDDL documents a namespace.  NRL specifies how to subdivide
a compound document into pieces and how to validate the pieces.
Both can be seen as "map namespace name to schema", but RDDL is much
more general, whereas NRL is specific to validation but provides
things like wildcard namespace names and multi-namespace schemas.
