Can you please explain, how you think GRDDL can be used "to get a 
finer-grained RDF representation of an XML document"?

Well this seems to be a matter of taste. We will discuss this.

cnt:Content resources can be used as object resources  for triples with 
http:body property as metioned in

You cannot include a document type _declaration_ in an XMLLiteral, can 
you? So we have to treat this part of an XML document differently. XML 
Schema uses attributes to reference external schemas. So that's no 
problem. I'm not sure whether there is a referencing mechanism for Relax NG.

Yes, it's both TextContent and XMLContent. And it may also be 
Base64Content. This scenario is described in "3. Usage scenarios", 
Situation E

I think we should change this to "Suggested types".
