I may be missing something here, but...

I think it was the RDF of the _compilation_ that interested me.  E.g. a 
single file that I might point an RDF engine at and have it pull in the 
various bits of information, including the compilation annotations.


I've taken another look at your dictionary, and realize I was missing 
something.  In this case, a "compilation" would be a simple collection 
(rdf:Bag?) of schema URIs.  Not such a big deal, I agree.
