The GRDDL spec managed a reasonable compromise between explicitness 
(RDF/XML) and generality (RDF graph).

e.g. graph
[[
If an information resource([WEBARCH], section 2.2) IR is represented by 
an XML document with an XPath root node R, and R has a GRDDL 
transformation with a transformation property TP, and TP applied to R 
gives an RDF Graph[RDFC04] G, then G is a GRDDL result of IR.
]]

e.g. RDF/XML
[[
If an information resource IR is represented by a conforming RDF/XML 
document[RDFX], then the RDF graph represented by that document is a 
GRDDL result of IR.
]]

I imagine that this issue can be handled similarly.
Also we need to take into account OWL/XML
