RE: [xml-dev] RE: Keep business-process-specific data separate?

I won't comment on the success or failure of RDF, but it seems to me
that it's highly abstract, not necessarily highly generic.  

What is a generic vocabulary?  One that serves too many masters?  Poorly
focused?  Become confused in the minds of consumers as referring to a
whole class of (vocabularies | schemas) rather than just the one?

Nope.  Just generic enough.
