Hi Dan:
Are you planning to join the XG?
My initial thought -- and this is what the charter says -- is to 
restrict the scope of the XG
to mapping from RDB to RDF and OWL.  Others have suggested broadening the
scope to encompass other data formats.  If you join the group you can 
argue for
what you want.
All the best, Ashok
