Re: Time-sensitive resources using RDF?

While people are at it, I notice that there is another spec from the 
Multimodal Interaction Activity that could use a look.  The Extensible 
Multi-Modal Annotations (EMMA) http://www.w3.org/TR/emma/ working draft 
says that it provides "an annotative syntax derived from RDF...". 
However, that's the only mention of RDF in the document, including the 
references.  It would be nice if the relationship were made more explicit.

EMMA is also cited as "a target data format for the semantic 
interpretation [for speech recognition] specification being developed in 
the Voice Browser Activity" (the Semantic Interpretation for Speech 
Recognition specification is at 
http://www.w3.org/TR/semantic-interpretation/ and is also in Last Call).

Given that the word "semantic" always seems to set off alarms wherever 
it appears (and probably ought to!), I hope people in both the Voice 
Browser Activity and the Semantic Web Activity are working on their 
stories to explain the relationship between "semantic" in these two 
contexts, especially since neither the semantic interpretation document 
nor the Voice Browser Activity page at http://www.w3.org/Voice/ seem to 
suggest that there is one (ahem!).
