allowing XML rather than RDF

I'd like to be able to use the CC schema at http://web.resource.org/cc/
in non-RDF XML. This is because the schema should be useful to people
who, right or wrong, aren't willing to pay the RDF tax. A lot of
people will not use RDF at this point, and there's no technical reason
why that should prevent them from using the CC schema.
Obviously I can just go ahead and do that, but there is one small
adjustment that would be nice. The namespace definition/description at
http://web.resource.org/cc/ says "The CC schema lets you describe
copyright licenses in RDF". If this said "The CC schema lets you
describe copyright licenses in XML", it would be easier to sell people
on using CC.
