Hi Ross,

No, the richer ontology is not an RDF vocabulary, but it adheres to linked
data concepts.

I'm looking to do something like this example of embedding mods in rdf:

These semantic ontologies are so flexible, it seems like I *can* do
anything, so I'm left wondering what I *should* do--what makes the most
sense, semantically.  Is it possible to nest rdf:Description into the
skos:Concept of my previous example, and then place <nuds:nuds>.....more
sophistated model......</nuds:nuds> into rdf:Description (or alternatively,
set rdf:Description/@rdf:resource to the URI of the web-accessible XML file?

Most RDF examples I've looked at online either have skos:Concept or
rdf:Description, not both, either at the same context in rdf:RDF or one
nested inside the other.
