Proposed edit to identify RDF/XML

At last meeting's telecon, we discussed how to deal with XML documents
that might parse as RDF/XML documents[0].  At that time, I took an
action to draft some text to try to address our decision[1].  My first
pass at this text follows.  This text is intended to follow the table
containing the last normative statement of section 3 in the GRDDL
editor's draft version 1.249[2].  The text does contain a normative
statement, but no mechanical rule.

<text status="suggestion">
<p><a
href="http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-rdf-syntax-grammar-20040210/#section
-grammar-productions">Identifying a conforming RDF/XML document is
optionally left up the system interacting with such a document</a><a
href="#RDFX">[RDFX]</a>.  A GRDDL-aware agent needs to be able to
determine when generic XML documents should be treated as RDF/XML in
order to apply the previous rule. As a result, it has an expanded
awareness of RDF/XML documents that includes most XML documents that
have a root element of <code>&lt;rdf:RDF
xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#"/&gt;</code>.
Specifically:</p>

<table border="1">
<tr>
  <th>Normative Statement</th>
</tr>

<tr>

<td class="assertion">
<p>If an information resource has media type "application/rdf+xml" or is
an XML document that follows <a
href="http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/REC-rdf-syntax-grammar-20040210/#doc">pr
oduction doc</a> from <cite>RDF/XML Syntax Specification</cite><a
href="#RDFX">[RDFX]</a>, then within the context of this specification
it is a conforming RDF/XML document.</p>
</td>

</tr>
</table>
