The "myDoc.rdf" approach works in the general case.  For examples, the 
RDF spec documents at http://www.w3.org/RDF/ have links (at the bottom 
of the documents) to .rdf files containing dublin core (and other) 
metadata (although each document uses the same filename, "metadata.rdf", 
rather than a document-specific filename).  In the case of pdf 
documents, Adobe's XMP (http://www.adobe.com/products/xmp/main.html) 
could be used to embed the metadata in the document itself.
