Another good reason for an RDF QL in RDF!

Seriously though, I do think such a QL would be extremely useful, not only
because it would generally help interop.  It would also mean that a whole
range of common expressions could become easier in RDF (without having to
drop into DAML-land), and also make things like XSLT-ish transformations a
lot more straightforward. Not unrelated to the interop point, the ability to
save sets of queries in a common format like RDF/XML has to be a plus - same
parser etc etc.

Cheers,
Danny.
