Interesting question. I also wondered whether a DTD/Schema is possible for RDF.
I am neither an RDF expert, nor a DTD/Schema expert, but I think that you will
not be able to create a DTD for RDF because of the extensive use of namespaces
in RDF. Eventually, you can create a DTD for the RDF namespace part.
Unfortunately, the contents of some elements depend on the value of an
attribute (parseType), which cannot be modelled by a DTD.

Maybe everything can be solved by the use of schemata, but I haven't taken a
look on these standards.
