I think this is probably worth doing, and that RelaxNG and XSD are
both feasible.

Yes, it limits expressiveness and extensibility, but keep in mind
that the mapping we've defined between .rdf and .ics isn't all
that extensible. We sorta support x- properties, but that's about
it. The tool could be split in two: (1) a filter
to grab just the .ics-relevant properties from an RDF knowledge
base and format the results in the syntactic profile, and
(2) a syntactic converter that only groks the profile.

I wonder if
is pretty much (2). Does it have a full RDF parser? No,
it seems to expect a limited syntax.

I'm sure (1) would be a pretty straightforward cwm filter.
