ohhh, this was a bad idea. i thought it would be good to have other 
resources like RSS displayed in the sidebar tree too. For example the 
tree could have 2 branches at the top containing the Sitemap and the RSS 
but i think the tree should be used only for the Sitemap and the RSS is 
handled by Firefox as users allready know. please never mind...

NNS(Navibars Sitemap format) use the map:container and map:embedded 
elements to realize exactly this(tree's behind tree's). Navibar do not 
have implemented this feature yet, but its a good idea. As you say, the 
current Sitemap proposal above does the job with the rdfs:seeAlso but i 
would also like to see to include parts of a tree from an other source.

The idea at the following example was to include a Sitemap from 
http://www.osar.ch/eductation-sitemap which replaces or extends the 
content of the children element. This would help splitting the content 
of a Sitemap and gives the chance to include Sitemaps and Lists(rss/atom 
??) from another domains.

The rdfs:seeAlso is not good here, i would use "src" or the atom 
ontology, what do you think about this?

By the way, the next time i write a spec by my own i will definitly talk 
to other about that, it was a big mistake to recommend NNS without 
showing the working draft first. A while i ask myself if there are other 
ways to distribute/share a new Sitemap Specification because i am afraid 
of having the specifications at http://navibar.oaklett.org/specs/. I am 
the owner of http://navibar.oaklett.org but i do not want to own the 
specification when it is used by many others out there. Are there ways 
to give it a more neutral touch?
