I'd be happy to hear more about the struggles you've had. ERT WG still 
intends to keep this as an RDF vocabulary but maybe we can do something 
to help XML compatibility.

I wonder if you can use parts of EARL. For example earl:Software to 
describe my scintillating JPEG validator:

<earl:Software rdf:about="#tool">
   <dc:title xml:lang="en">JPEGValidator</dc:title>
   <dc:description xml:lang="en">Shadi's Scintillating JPEG 
   <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://abou-zahra.mobi/checker"/>

See more examples in the EARL 1.0 Schema document:
  - <http://www.w3.org/TR/EARL10-Schema/#software>

As above, I'd be happy to work with you on such an XML schema for the 
HTTP Vocabulary (in RDF).
