But RDF is not XML and XML is not RDF. 

Why enforce anything related to XML, into RDF model?. Current RDF M & S has
a problem, in that there is mixing of XMLized RDF in the RDF M & S document.
RDF M & S shall only talk about the model and leave serialization,
interchange formats to either appendix or a seperate document.

Perhaps, an attempt at refactoring RDF M & S to using N3 completely would
highlight any such mixing of XML & RDF.

Subject: RDF Core WG work on literals



I just finished going through some of the messages on the
w3c-rdfcore-wg@w3.org Mail archives concerning literals.  I am very
concerned that the RDF Core WG is going down a completely wrong path with
this work on literals.

As an alternative proposal why not simply say that RDF literals are XML
strings, and use the semantics for the XML Schema string datatype?
