I have been looking at the XML Schema of EAC-CPF.
I was wondering whether anyone would be interested in mapping this model
to RDF or even OWL?
The logic that EAC-CPF assumes can also be expressed in that language.
For system developers it could be useful, because in the Semantic Web
community they have been developing lots of tools to use RDF in a fancy way.
