Minor bug report and request for rebrand?

From: Hogan, Aidan <aidan.hogan@deri.org>
Date: Sat, 26 Feb 2011 23:53:12 -0000
Message-ID: <316ADBDBFE4F4D4AA4FEEF7496ECAEF90543029F@EVS1.ac.nuigalway.ie>
To: <www-rdf-validator@w3.org>

Two things wrt. [1]

Getting a NullPointerException as opposed to a meaningful message on the
following snippet:

<rdf:RDF xmlns:res="http://www.w3.org/2005/sparql-results#" 
   <rdf:Description rdf:nodeID="rset">
rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/2005/sparql-results#ResultSet" />
       <res:binding rdf:nodeID="asd">

Here, <res:binding> should be closed immediately after giving a value
for the rdf:nodeID attribute. It is invalid, but NullPointerException is
not informative.

Any chance of rebranding the validator as the W3C RDF*/XML* validator?
RDF/XML and RDF are not the same thing, and conflating them is bad.
There are many other syntaxes available for RDF which are not supported
here. (Being a bit pedantic, but hey...)
