The GRDDL Working Group at W3C has completed work on the Working Group 
Note "GRDDL Use Cases: Scenarios of extracting RDF data from XML 
documents" and is pleased to announce its publication the 6th of April 2007.

There are many dialects of XML in use by documents on the web. In 
addition, recently two progressive encoding techniques, RDFa and 
microformats, have emerged to overlay additional semantics onto valid 
XHTML documents. While this breadth of expression is quite liberating, 
it can prove to be a barrier to understanding across different domains 
or fields.

GRDDL is a mechanism for Gleaning Resource Descriptions from Dialects of 
Languages; that is, for extracting RDF data from XML documents by way of 
transformation algorithms, typically represented in XSLT and usually 
producing RDF/XML documents.

This note collects a number of motivating use cases together with their 
goals and requirements for extracting RDF data from XML documents.
