Hmm.  Actually, as far as I can tell, Turtle is not mappable to RDF/XML
because Turtle is supposed to allow writing down arbitrary RDF graphs,
but RDF/XMl cannot.  See

I was looking for the mapping from Turtle to RDF graphs or RDF triples
and couldn't find one.  There is certainly no mapping in the team
