I was just talking about RDF Syntax. But would be interested
in an example of how this would work??

From a *semantic* point-of-view, it should not care *how* you got
the metadata - just that you got it.

CORBA services processing RDF statements will do very different things.

The point was to establish the semantics, not the many technical options
of obtaining the metadata.
