Re: POWDER + GRDDL = POWDER semantics?

That's my understanding, yes. One would be a relatively complex/verbose 
form that was derived from the other, presumably by machine. That form 
would be processable in a non-POWDER-aware environment. The simpler 
format would only be processable if the client understood the 
peculiarities and assumptions of POWDER. They would, however, mean the 
same.

As an aside, I plan to make the ICRA data available in both formats, 
with the semantic version available as an RDF dump complete with SPARQL 
engine. The word 'plan' is from the Slovakian meaning "have a hope to" 
in the context of "need to raise some funding to pay someone to do it 
because I'm a little out of my depth" - that sort of plan. But the end 
result should be a controlled-vocabulary description of a lot of Web 
sites. By June ;-)

Is that correct?
