I have not read the draft, so maybe the following comment is
irrelevant, but reading the above makes me think of
http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-rdb-direct-mapping-20110324/ that does a
direct mapping from a database schema to RDF, then uses SPARQL
CONSTRUCT as transformation rules to generate rdf triples with
well-known vocabularies.

It could be an interesting approach to jump right into RDF-land from
wherever you stand, including MARC/XML, then use the common tools
available to manipulate RDF to make the data easier to reuse.

Hope this helps,

Nicolas Chauvat
