there'll have to be some eventually! Can't do RDF without RDF/ 
XML...and can't do SPARQL without sparql result sets...

For now I guess we sort-of plan on just using redland whenever we do  
XML, which uses gnome's libxml2 if I'm not mistaken, which I thought  
was sort-of the standard XML toolkit for native stuff.

What kind of processing would we consider it for? How does it relate  
to libxml2?

Does it come as a seperate distribution? Where? Is it supported that  
way? What about documentation? Are there existing non-WS projects  
using it? Does it have backwards compatibility practices and standards?

(Yes yes, I know, ask on the right mailing list :-))

I don't even really know what XML infoset is; scrolling through the  
W3C docs it sounds like a document-oriented thing, which RDF isn't!
