Oh, that kind of backward compatibility ;-)  I was only thinking of RDF
processors, not RDF data.

This does not rule out making this kind of change... please here me out:

Their use for describing non-RDF 'resources' could be deprecated.  RDF
'resources' would still have to be fragments because of the
'schema-follows-data' style syntax (i.e. mapping qname -> URI reference in
the PropertyElt & TypedNode productions).

Now, RDF resources only occur in RDF documents, so the application/rdf+xml
mime type could define rdf fragments for this mime type accordingly.

Lee
