There was some discussion of this at the RDF Next Steps Workshop, 
but the final W3C decision was not to include this in the current RDF
Working Group charter.  However, interested parties could independently
write up something to propose as a W3C Member Submission.  Chimezie
Ogbuji and I discussed this a bit at the Cleveland Clinic.  I, for one,
would have some interest in this.
