I've been telling my students that, to a certain extent, RDF merely
involves making
certain of the semantics that are implicit in any DTD explicit (and

As far as this is true, people do not need to author data in RDF XML,
since they
can transform into it.  What is more important is that designers of a
DTD should
consider whether the DTD (and documentation) has everything in it to
allow the document to be satisfactorily transformed into RDF XML if

And I suspect  that this ultimately boils down to using well-known
vocabularies which have accepted names (formal public identifiers such
as URNs)
and also to using as specific element types as possible.  Does this
sound right?
