I'm not sure whether we are misunderstanding each other or whether 
I am misunderstanding the GRDDL document [1].  The document is very 
terse, and I may be missing some context.  Please clarify how one 
would construct a human-readable RDDL document containing links to 
GRDDL transform(s), among other resources.  Please also clarify 
what Nature/Purpose [2] one would use for the GRDDL link(s).
