HTTP property set,XSet,PRL?

After doing some more reading (and a lot of archive searching) it looks like what I'd really like is a very low level HTTP property set, with a couple of different grove plans depending on what exactly needs to be manipulated. The idea would be that the complete (full fidelity?) grove would have enough information to round-trip the HTTP back to exactly the sequence of bytes that was originally parsed. (Apologies if I'm misusing the terminology, I suspect I'm mixing my SGML and XML metaphors. I'm still getting up to speed with groves and property sets and info sets, and ...) Reading over the mailing list archives has led me to think that the best approach might be to express the rfc2616 EBNF in RDF/PRL ala XSet. The HTTP EBNF doesn't look to be as precise as XML's (not all whitespace is explicitly included, for example), so some interpretation would be needed, but the basic idea would be similiar to XSet. Have I finally gone into terminal spec-overload? Does the above make any sense at all? Any feedback is greatly appreciated. -- Christopher St. John cks@d... DistribuTopia http://www.distributopia.com
