Looking at the draft resolution to this issue

http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/XLink.html

I note that the scope proposed excludes using XLink for the semantic style
links that correspond to RDF arcs.


This seems to exclude approaches such as Ron Daniel's harvesting of XLinks
as RDF Statements, [1]. (More precisely it excludes sowing RDF statements
using such XLinks!)

With Silvia Martelli and Oreste Signore, I have been working on extending
Ron's work to allow XLink to be used as a serialization of RDF. This, while
more verbose than RDF/XML, is significantly more conformant with the XML
family of specs, and embeds better into XHTML (our use case). We've written
our work up, and submitted it to www2003 [2].
