I won't reply to this thread until I let more people verbalize their 
feelings, but this is OT enough for me to reply now.

Are you mentioning the ability to add RDF metadata to our real blocks 
(as, ehm, mozilla does) or about the ability to deal and manage RDF data 
directly in cocoon?

For the first, well, it all depends on the real block implementation 
(and honestly, not that important since strongly structured markup can 
be RDFized with very little effort).

For the second, there are huge problems: processing RDF thru its RDF/XML 
representation is hell. Read Ian's post for more

Ian and I are thinking about writing a note to W3C (my employer is a 
member...ehm, *IS* W3C :-) about a canonical RDF/XML representation that 
makes it easier to use XML technologies on top of RDF data serialized as 
with an XML model.

But then again, I must warn you, it will still be a massive hack.

There is a lot of work to do to bring the RDF and the XML world 
closer... unfortunately, there is resistance in both.
