It might be useful to investigate what infrastructure they're using to dispatch handling of elements based on namespace. > The UI could be a collection of > resources made for elements in this namespace, including XSL > stylesheets to transform an element into XHTML and XForms for > creating them. Would this be something appropriate to include > in an RDDL document? Yes. Mappings to and from other similar languages are another useful thing to include. That way a processor could look up the newly encountered namespace and then find transformations that can turn it into something it can process. This might involve traversing RDDL documents. > Also, is there a cannon of purposes and natures?
