You're right about this, though it's an issue I had hoped to avoid at this 
stage of the game.  The kind of metadata we've been talking about here is 
descriptive information - documentation - not the more complete information 
RDF provides.  Nonetheless, I don't want collisions.

This will be one of the key questions asked in the next phase of the 
discussion.  I consider RDF one of the "W3C recommendations regarding XML" and 
don't think this needs to be stated explicitly.  Others may feel differently, 
and I'd like to hear suggestions.
