The question is exactly how should the interesting discovery that an

Clearly it could completely underpin the extensibility framework, and
so allow the Atom charter to be successfully fulfilled.
I think that the charter requirements on extensibility will be filled
adequately with PaceExtendingAtom. I think they would be filled still
better by adopting PaceMustUnderstandElement, but apparently others are
unconvinced. Extensibility via a mapping to RDF seems to me to add a
lot of complexity (most people have never bothered to learn graph
theory) without any real benefit. -Tim
