Since RDF is about metadata, it may prove very useful to be able to
express that a certain resource (which may be a fragment) is of a
certain type according to a schema language. The schema information may
not be useful to the RDF but if this gets implemented, it may be the
only way (someone please do correct me if I'm wrong) to associate XML
fragments as resources with their structural validation module.

Kindest regards,
