You may be interested in our work at the OMG.  The following submission
proposes a CORBA interface for querying RDF information:

 http://www.omg.org/cgi-bin/doc?utility/99-08-01

The main elements of this are:

- CORBA interface for queries against RDF-model oriented data
- CORBA encoding for resource descriptions (query results)
- use of RDF-schema for the meta-data

Admitedly, only the latter feature involves XML and RDF-syntax, so this is
probably not exactly what you had in mind.  But the rest is all RDF-model
based and so you may be interested in the choices we made in the query
design.
