Subject: RE: [regrep] [Topic Maps vs. RDF][Fwd: [egov] Re: [huml] The Office of Justice Programs's (OJP) Justice XML Data Dictionay]

I agree that RDF style triples could be used.  Triples can refer to non RDF
data (such as WSDL, BPML, or XSD). An RDF API approach that includes the
ability to take non RDF data as payload is a valid one.

Agreed (again) -
An API supporting RDF Triples should support any and all of the
proposed(Topic Map / OWL / Z395 )  interactions .

Indeed, it is envisioned that the validity of an RDF API approach will be
heavily debated by the members of the proposed  ebXMLRegistry Semantic
Content sub-TC.
