I gave repeated feedback on the ODM for topic maps to Lewis Hart when
he was responsible for it, before Bob Colomb took over. Admittedly I
have not looked at it for a while, but I would claim to be quite
familiar with it. 

I don't see how ODM could help RDFTM in what it is trying to do. In my
opinion we'd be better off just using TMDM and RDF triple notation to
express our conversion rules than we would be with ODM.

The point of Q is that it is different in nature from all of these
models (ODM, TMDM, RDF); it's a single model that can represent both
Topic Maps and RDF.
