Sounds like more efficiency in RDF.

Cool, so I can also include CAD drawings of my engine part assembly as some
of the quality control reference material with my business process model
logic expressed in my UMM/ebXML business models, for my new car assembly
plant dock receiving procedures that I'd use with parts vendors ! And
further if I embed audio track metadata to work with some of the failure
post condtions on the receiving process, I could imagine 'active documents'
in ebXML somewhere in the not to distant future. I already see the W3C has a
note on "Describing and retrieving photos using RDF and HTTP".

Keep going. I like it !

Always head of the curve !

Free parsers too !

Hang onto that thought.
