I was saying to someone the other day that it is bizarre and painful that you can't get SPARQL result sets in RDF, or at least there isn't a standard ontology for them.
But it looks like I was wrong.
http://dbpedia.org/sparql?default-graph-uri=http%3A%2F%2Fdbpedia.org&query=select+distinct+*+where+{%3Fs+%3Fp+%3Fo}+LIMIT+100&format=application%2Frdf%2Bxml
happily gives me what I was expecting, and also gives me NTriples if I want them.
But the NS is http://www.w3.org/2005/sparql-results#
which doesn't give me what I was expecting (it is ordinary XML).
I did find what I think is the latest version, but it eschews RDF, and only talks about XML, JSON, CSV and TSV formats.

Can anyone shed any light on where things are on all this please?
Cheers
Hugh
