Interesting, though I'll admit that I cringe any time people map XML
vocabularies directly to APIs.

Is answering Simon Fell's original question about roles [1] enough to
deal with this, or is something more powerful needed?  

I guess I can see RDDL pointing to "here's how to process this stuff"
via WSDL, but worry that WSDL itself specifies something larger than
RDDL, as most Web Services I've seen involve interactions between
multiple (and frequently more than 2) namespaces.
