Yep. Some examples where this might be feasible are RSS 1.0, DOAP and
the FOAFnet 'profile' of FOAF (not sure of the status of the last one
- it was an offshoot/fringe thing). All of these (can) have
constrained syntax which should allow pure-XML authoring/validation.

manager for remembering links like this, but http://del.icio.us now
seems a better fit]
