I thought it had been mentioned - and positively - but maybe private mail. My take is: We do not intend to overlap with RDF if we can avoid it - we want the systems to be complementary. Since I imagine that RDF metadata will be ubiquitous (i.e. every responsible XML document author will include RDF-based metadata) I assume that XSchemas will include RDF-based metadata. There seem to be two ways this might occur: - metadata "at the head of the XShema" - what is this XSchema about - who owns it - how can it be used - who has validated it, etc - metadata that the XSchema might provide for documents or their authors - help, links, etc. My feeling - at this early stage - was that we are certainly not inventing a new syntax for metadata (even in a very limited fashion) but we are thinking about the metacontent that an XSchema might deliver. I would be very hesitant at this stage of providing anything much more than name-value metadata. I have no problem with many contentSpecs in an XSchema including RDF:*, but how it might be used is probably too early. In any case we have to be very careful not to overstretch what we are doing. P.
