Re: [xml-dev] XML vs JSON


You don't NEED RDF but it can be a useful tool nonetheless.

XML primarily -- natively -- has a tree-based data model.

It can store graphs, but doing so requires an extra data model such
as RDF or XBRL linkbases (which massively use XLink), and such data
models are not specifically bound or restricted to XML syntax.

ID/IDREF can be used for graphs... a native facility.  You don't really need RDF, etc.
