Apologies for the crosspost.

I'm looking for people who are tracking the details of both XML TopicMaps
and the W3C XML Protocols work. It has been suggested that XML TopicMap
syntax might provide a basis for a hypothetical "RDF 2.0" XML Syntax.
Similarly it has been suggested that the SOAP XML graph serialization
syntax might also provide such a syntax. More recently, W3C have
undertaken XML protocols work ([1]) that includes work on ...

	"A mechanism for serializing data representing non-syntactic data
	models such as object graphs and directed labeled
      	graphs, based on the datatypes of XML Schema. "

So I'm hearing from different directions that XTM may be a good fit for
RDF "2.0", and that XP Serialization may equally be an option for RDF
serialization. What I've heard suprisingly little about is the notion of
using XTM in an XP context. Hence this three-way crosspost. If anyone is
working in this area, I'd be very interested in your perspective...
