Yep, good idea. I too, would like to know if anyone has formalised something
along these lines. I had this in mind a while back ie to create a language
that
specifies application-specific mappings between RDF and XML [1]. We went in
a different direction back then and devised an XSLT-inspired transformation
language for mapping RDF graphs to hierarchical XML documents [2].

But XML schema is popular. More than one of our clients chose it to
specify message grammars for middleware.  At some point, the need to map
these grammars onto something broader arises.  Addorning XML schema would be
ideal.
