Dan,

I think this is great!  Thanks for putting that together. From RDDL:

"A Resource Directory Description is designed to be suitable for service as
the body of a resource returned by dereferencing a URI serving as an XML
Namespace name."

In my browser when I simply plop in the namespace I got the XML Schema.
Shouldn't resolving the namespace URL actually take you to the RDDL document
to begin with instead of the schema?  Technically an RDDL enabled parser
should be able to follow that path.  A human could simply click the link.  I
think this is slightly different from adding .html to the end (as that isn't
common knowledge) and I think that making the RDDL document the default
would help people who are digging around-- the schema could always be
returned by specifying application/xml or text/xml in the header.  What do
you think?

Thanks again,
Jeff Rafter
