what we found in monet was that syntactic awkwardness wasn't really the 
issue, so much as tool support. It would clearly be possible to come up 
with an encoding for rdfs (or owl) using openmath elements but the 
resulting expressions wouldn't be natural to use for openmath tools and 
wouldn't be usable at all by owl/rdf reasoners. If instead you extract 
that subset of the information in the CDs that is amenable to RDF/OWL 
reasoning engines into separate files using one of the standard syntaxes 
for those languages then you got the most out of each community's tool 
set (at some administrative cost in making sure the various files and 
formats were in sync)
