Interesting... two questions for now:

(1) Can semantic annotations appear anywhere in the EBNF, or just at the 
end of a branch?  Or only at the end of a top-level branch.  Or something else?

(2) I can see how the notation would be used to read RDF from some syntax, 
but not how you would use it to write some syntax from RDF data -- you do 
claim that reading *and* writing are goals.  How is your progress in this area?
