Does this fit with the TC's charter? From XRI TC charter


The scope of the XRI TC is limited to the definition of the XRI 
identifier scheme, one or more resolution protocols (in particular, 
a generic resolution protocol with secure resolution extensions), 
XRI metadata (special XRI identifiers used for describing other 
XRI identifiers), and documents supporting implementation and 
interoperability of XRIs.

A separate OASIS TC (XRI Data Interchange - XDI) is expected to 
define an XML schema and an associated Web service for exchanging 
data and metadata identified by XRIs.

It seems the second paragraph hints that Yadis may be a better fit 
in the XDI TC?
