Oh, I totally agree. Just wondering if there should be URIs for these less
standard formats minted elsewhere (librdf.org?). It would be usful to be
able to deference them to something concistent (rdfs:label, rdfs:comment,

Some examples in Redland that don't currently have Format URIs:
- Trig
- N-Quads
- Talis JSON
- JSON triples
- GraphViz DOT format
- RSS 1.0
- Atom

Perhaps these two could have official W3C URIs - they are used in the SPARQL
test cases I think?
- Turtle SPARQL Query Results
- RDF/XML SPARQL Query Results

Is there a specification for them somewhere?
