See:

I recently got into discussion on this (on the Atom list) with Roy T.
Fielding. To paraphrase, he generally accepted the analysis that XML
didn't make the relations more explicit than syntax containership, but
argued that the relations were "obvious", and shouldn't really need
making explicit. His word for any format that didn't use the obvious
XML interpretation "perverse". RDF/XML falls into that category ;-)

Cheers,
Danny.
