Ursula,

I think the short answer is you can't use the xsi:type attribute in
RDF/XML in this way, because RDF/XML doesn't give any special treatment
to the xsi: namespace. 

There was some discussion of this topic starting here:

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-rdf-interest/2002Aug/0122.html

You may be able to devise W3C XML Schemas to validate at least some
forms or "profiles" of RDF/XML (I haven't tried!), but I think you'd
have to engineer your XML Schemas so that they do not require the use of
xsi:type in the instance document.

Cheers

Pete
