The July 4, 2005 proposed RDDL syntax allows (in addition to  
<rddl:resource xlink:role= xlink:arcrole= > ) placing rddl:nature and  
rddl:purpose attributes directly on <html:a> elements e.g.

<a rddl:nature="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema";  

This change should be backward compatible with the current RDDL  
syntax such that all current RDDL documents will still be "new" RDDL  
documents. Tim Bray feels that this new syntax is more readable, and  
I agree. Moreover there is little harm in allowing this.
