FWIW -- though I'm speaking here only as the UMD alternate to this group,
not as a DAWG member -- the DAWG also has some medium and long term interest
in the RDF mapping. We're using WSDL 2 to specify our protocol for accessing
RDF triple stores over HTTP (and, probably, SOAP), and we also want to
build, eventually, some domain-specific vocabulary for describing RDF query
processing services. Which is a natural for RDF. With an RDF mapping of
WSDL, we can merge all of this stuff together and be happy little clams.

Take this as merely another point of information. :>
