Can you explain what you mean by "RDF's ability to allow multiple data
models to peacefully coexist, interconnected, in the same data" ?

     I -- and I'm sure many others -- have struggled for years trying to
     succinctly describe RDF's ability to allow multiple data models to
     peacefully coexist, interconnected, in the same data.  For data
     integration, this is a key strength of RDF that distinguishes it
     from other information representation languages such as XML.   I
     have tried various terms over the years -- most recently "schema
     promiscuous" -- but have not yet found one that I think really nails
     it, so I would love to get other people's thoughts.

     This google doc lists several candidate terms, some pros and cons,
     and allows you to indicate which ones you like best:

     Please have a look and indicate your favorite(s).  You may also add
     more ideas and comments to it.  The document can be edited by anyone

     Thanks!
