Either that draft TAG finding is broken or I'm missing something.

I don't think that another example will fix it.  There seems 
to be a conceptual gap here.  Why does the finding have a 
section called "3.3 Using GRDDL", which starts  with: 
"A third approach is to use [GRDDL]"?
   ^^^^^
Why is this a separate "approach"?  Why doesn't the finding 
simply offer a Purpose such as "Serves the purpose of conversion 
to RDF/XML"?

So why isn't this included in the list of Purposes in the draft 
finding?

Ditto.
