XSchema Question 1: RDF

It looks like RDF is no-where near the stage where XSchema could do much to
support it yet. There is still the big fat warning on its header.

In particular, section 3. "Transporting RDF" mentions "embedding" (this
seems to mean an element reference), "along-with" (external markup), service
bureau" (external markup) and "wrapping" as the four ways of associating
descriptions and resources. But the current spec only considers wrapping. I
guess this is because these other parts of RDF rely on X-Link. (Embedding
and external markup could be done using ISO Topic Navigation Maps.)
