There's a really simple algorithm for deciding whether to introduce a 
feature, tag, or datum that RDF folks want. Pretend you've never heard 
of RDF, OWL, or the Semantic Web. Eliminate all arguments in favor that 
reference RDF, OWL, or the Semantic Web. Then ask, "Does the addition 
still make sense?" If so, add it, If not, leave it out.
