My understanding is that an RDF/XML document is a GRDDL result of itself.

My code implements that using the following technique:

1)  Get URL, and set docMimeType from the http response headers.
2)  Parse content as XML (minimally first element),
     set rootNameSpace as the namespace of the root element
...

Later
    if docMimeType="application/rdf+xml"
          or rootNameSpace = RDF.Namespace
    then
      read document with identity transform
    end if


I am thinking of extending that to include application/rdf+n3 as well; 
currently I don't cope with namespace documents written in N3, which 
feels like a bug to me. (i.e. an unpleasant surprise for a user).
