I have been experimenting on the possibility to fix bugs in RSS 1.0 
while maintaining a higher degree of compatibility and without changing 
the namespace.

The draft at http://esw.w3.org/topic/RSS deprecates several problematic 
properties and introduces better alternatives, where possible the new 
variants are superclasses of the old deprecated ones.

Additionally it addresses the problem that merging the triples of two 
different versions of a RSS 1.0 causes incoherent rdf (multiple 
properties of seq with the same ordinal-number).

I haven't used OWL in the schema but kept the changes to the current 
version small. While some cardinality restrictions could be useful I 
plead to be very conservative with this in order to facilitate future 
usage scenarios.
