Hi Richard,

If you look at this version

    http://people.csail.mit.edu/dfhuynh/projects/eswc2008/eswc2008-rdf.html

you'll see that the RDF/XML file is linked directly. So, there's pretty 
much zero cost in getting RDF into Exhibit (it took me about 5 minutes 
to put that exhibit up). Exhibit automatically routes RDF/XML files 
through Babel for conversion. In the first version, I did that 
conversion and saved the JSON output so that Babel won't get invoked 
every time someone views the exhibit. That's an optimization. Of course, 
Babel isn't perfect in doing the conversion.

Here is an iPhone mockup version for the same exhibit:

I only tested it on Firefox and Safari. I think the back button 
functionality doesn't quite work that well, but you get the idea.
