The RDF Schema spec hints at 'rdfs:seeAlso' for cascading purposes, e.g.:

<rdf:RDF ...(namespaces)...>
	<rdf:Description rdf:about="" rdfs:seeAlso="furtherinfo.rdf"/>
</rdf:RDF>

I thought this is what XML Namespaces are for!  Just embed your elements,
any processor that doesn't recognise the namespace (within its context) can
ignore it.  Note that to validate such documents properly (and allow such
open mixing-and-matching of different 'XML mini-languages') will require XML
Schema.
