Very good, Ron. Well said.
And here is my attempt to explain why RDF hasn't been more successful:
The syntax is hideously ugly and hard to understand, and the spec worries
so hard about being correct and complete that it is pretty well 100%
incomprehensible to ordinary people.
I probably just hurt some feelings, but I've already shouted this in private
enough times that it won't be a surprise.
In my opinion RDF needs some serious sugar-coating and tutorializing
if it is ever going to achieve its potential.
I think its potential is huge, dwarfing that of XML. -Tim
