Just brainstorming ...

XML stuff is file scope (well XML element scope)
e.g.
- namespaces, xml:lang, xml:base
- character encoding

BaseURI is file scope (the one we really retrieved the doc from)

nodeID's are file scope

ID's are file scope (at least the constraint that two ID's cannot be the
same).

(The proposal hasn't identified whether it really is *file* scope or rdf:RDF
element scope: for files with two rdf:RDF elements).

Not very much really.

The DAML+OIL and OWL people use the file to refer to the collection of
triples forming the ontology. The idiom is something like:

<rdf:RDF>
  <daml:Ontology rdf:about="">
    ...
