Dear Group,

 

My opinion about "Rigid RDF" remains unchanged. Using RDF datatypes is
justifiable and optional.  However, using RDF to define the very
structure of RIF establishes a strong link to RDF that is _not_
justifiable. Millions of Web, Java and .NET developers have reconciled
themselves to XML-based configuration files, and making RDF namespace a
requirement will raise a number of eyebrows unnecessarily.
