My feedback will be …

… of that kind:  I have successfully done some XSLT processing with RXR
(http://wiki.oasis-open.org/office/RXR,
http://www.dajobe.org/papers/xmleurope2004/).  I found it very nice for XSLT
processing, as there is exactly one way for writing down things.  On the other
hand, it's a bit harder to read for humans, as it always uses full URIs, and
there is not syntax for anonymous bnodes; you always have to give bnodes an
ID.

Still, whatever syntax it will be in the end, I support any initiative towards
deprecating RDF/XML or at least introducing a machine-friendly XML syntax in
RDF 2.0.

Cheers,

Christoph
