However this has more to do with the sanctioned serialization than 
any actual tension between XML and RDF. And we should note there are 
alternative XML serializations for RDF out there. Where I think your 
point makes sense is when we try and design our XML structures to be 
RDF happy using RDF/XML. The sanctioned syntax seems to want to be 
all things to all people - a way to serialize RDF in XML and a way 
for authors to make their grammars RDF aware. Users on the whole 
seem to be resistant to the syntax. or perhaps they don't find the 
idea value enough right now to clutter their markup.
