It will probably be the ultraminimal version as in http://www.tbray.org/tag/rddl4.html - there will probably be a canonical mapping to RDF. The W3C will probably not decree the use of RDDL, rather there will be a TAG finding saying "Here are the issues about namespace documents, and if you want to have them, here's one data format that is appropriate." </prediction> -- Cheers, Tim Bray (ongoing fragmented essay: http://www.tbray.org/ongoing/)
