It is too unformed for prime time, but this thread fills me with hope that I might get some feedback for something I am struggling with. I am interested in reviews or suggestions (off-list) about a draft note I am writing in the general area of serializing graphs into XML. The note explores the idea that a good markup language hides certain kinds of arcs which might be present in a fully explicit RDF-style data representation. So the function of a schema language (or of a serialization strategy, to the extent that one is the inverse of the other!) is to declare which arcs will have been elided (or to figure out which arcs to elide, in the case of the serialization strategy). Things such as "co-occurrence constraints" and "inheritence" are symptoms of this kind of elision. The note is at http://www.ascc.net/~ricko/schematron.PDF Please don't waste your time looking at this unless you are highly motivated, because it is pre-draft, and is geared towards Schematron.
