We did talk there, but the solution we adopted turned out to be  
slightly broken in apache 1.3, which is what ESO were using for www.ivoa.net 
  at the time.  So we decided to revisit it after their upgrade to  
apache 2.x.  That's happened, and I've been able to test the current  
solution in a local apache 2 server, so we should be OK for putting  
that on www.ivoa.net.

I don't think there was any problem in principle about the www.ivoa.net/rdf 
  namespace.  Bruno's simply waiting for us to make another WD  
release, which I think we can do with edits accumulated in Trieste.

Sounds good!
