Personally I think the approach of XSLT-ing your XML documents into 
appropriate RDF/XML is likely to be a better fit.

Issues that cannot be adequately addressed in other ways include:

- closed world versus open world.
- defaults


The XSLT you write should make explicit any implicit semantic assumptions 
in your XML format. Typically your application will be happy with defaults, 
and with various closed world assumptions, which should be made explicit 
for interchange with other unknown apps on the semantic web.
