Minor bug report and request for rebrand?

Aidan Hogan
Howdy,

Two things wrt. [1]

(a)
Getting a NullPointerException as opposed to a meaningful message on the
following snippet:

<rdf:RDF xmlns:res="http://www.w3.org/2005/sparql-results#"
         xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#">
   <rdf:Description rdf:nodeID="rset">
       <rdf:type
rdf:resource="http://www.w3.org/2005/sparql-results#ResultSet" />
       <res:binding rdf:nodeID="asd">
          <res:variable>dataset</res:variable>
       </res:binding>
   </rdf:Description>
</rdf:RDF>

Here, <res:binding> should be closed immediately after giving a value
for the rdf:nodeID attribute. It is invalid, but NullPointerException is
not informative.

(b)
Any chance of rebranding the validator as the W3C RDF*/XML* validator?
RDF/XML and RDF are not the same thing, and conflating them is bad.
There are many other syntaxes available for RDF which are not supported
here. (Being a bit pedantic, but hey...)

Cheers,
Aidan
