I think that now is a good time to start a dialog between the RDF tribe and the Topic Maps tribe. It's a double-edged knife, one that cuts both ways, looking at the true nature of the inquiries of each tribe.

of the RDF tribe are associated with subject identity, something
the Topic Maps tribe have always seemed rather smug about.
