Something I've not done, which I think would be legal according to the spec
is allow you to switch ARP in at an arbitrary point in your XML doc ...


<blah>
  <blah>
    <blah>
  <!-- this is RDF content because I just know -->


  <!-- end RDF content -->
    </blah>
   </blah>
</blah>

I think an RDF implementation that worked with a SAX parser or a DOM and
allowed the user to choose which bit of the doc was RDF would be compliant;
but no-ones asked me for that.
