in terms of software. the "official" word is still "no".
A few months ago executives were telling me they "still don't see what
RDF brings to the table" -- but at least they're not comparing it to CDF
anymore! (due to this RDF smart bookmark stuff making it look like a
DCD can be taken as sort of an XML-Data Schema/RDF Schema bridge....even
though the new RDF Schema specs reads a little like walking the plank!
But remember, XML-Data is only a member submission (as is DCD), and it
is very likely that schema support will be taken on by the XML WG --
making both specs experimental....
Hope this helps:
