Karl --

You said that there's a missing bit of RDF for XML people.

No argument with that, because there's a missing bit of RDF for real world semantics too.  A really huge bit.

This is argued in detail in the "e-Government Presentation" at www.reengineeringllc.com .

An example of how to fill the gap is

Frank Manola's approach can have added semantics too, as in

    http://www.reengineeringllc.com/demo_agents/DataModelling1.agent

One way to think about this is that  RDF and XML are about "data semantics", and the new stuff is about  "application semantics".  We really do need both.
