<bsmedberg> RDF is based on the pretentious and frankly insulting theory that
it should be able to describe anything in the universe...
The RDF format is great for serialization since it's XML. The interface to the data model is the problem, since it uses a plain graph model instead of a relational model.
ok: You can get much smaller and simpler serialization by using a simpler XML format. RDF is too generic to be the best fit for any purpose.
