At the moment there is no explicit "back-pointer" from a RDDL to the target it describes. Jonathan and I talked about this but couldn't think of a good reason to have one. But we didn't consider it that much; is there a good reason? > I like RDDL a lot, but I am wondering if it's not misusing simple XLink > here since after http://www.rddl.org/ has been redirected to > http://www.openhealth.org/RDDL/ , my understanding is that when I read: > > <rddl:resource xlink:type="simple" ... etc ... > this is describing a link between the rddl:resource element of the > http://www.openhealth.org/RDDL/ XML document and the document > http://www.rddl.org/natures rather than a link between > http://www.rddl.org/ and http://www.rddl.org/natures. No, if you go and read the introduction to the RDDL spec, it states clearly that the links are from the descriptions of the related resouces to the related resources being described. We re-wrote the intro because of precisely the question you just asked. -Tim
