Ok, then I will put a deliberately provocative question: 
What *is* GRDDL actually?

I can define an XSLT between two XML formats, anyway. 
Is GRDDL more than just a hint to people that they can 
use XSLT to transform arbitrary XML to *RDF/XML* in particular?

Or putting it differently: What would be missing, 
if GRDDL wouldn't exist, given that there is already XSLT?

Or putting it even more differently: What would be wrong with 
just defining *some* XSLT from OWL/XML to RDF/XML, 
simply forgetting about the *word* "GRDDL"?
