Although I'm having a problem with W3 space - is there a way I can get
xinclude1.html and xinclude2.xml, and xinclude1.rdf to be set to
world-readable in W3 space?

Chime's 4Suite-based GRDDL implementation correctly resolves the
XInclude and passes the test.

However - can we *guarantee* this? I ran Xalan on the test case and it
does *not* by default resolve the XInclude, so any programmer using
Xalan to implement GRDDL would fail on this test case. Danny - tell me
when your implementation is ready and I'll bet we'll get another result
on this one :)

This puts the entire test case in jeopardy. Either we

1) Dictate XInclude must be supported by all GRDDL parsers


2) We don't, and therefore say that if you want to make sure your
XIncludes get resolved, use XMLProc or another Pipeline implementation.
Otherwise you have to hope for the best.

I'll take this up as least as a straw poll on our telecon tomorrow.
