I only mentioned RDF lists for reference, in case someone new to the scene
didn't know about that established construct. (Not sure what you mean about
raw RDF though – that construct is for RDF in general.)

(And I know usage is effectively locked to a subset of these
general mechanisms. Of course, it's still wise, when doing new designs, to
seek alignment with existing shapes of expression. But I'm not overly
concerned here; I think these shapes are known.)
