Yes, Google use Raptor for parsing FOAF/RDF for the Social Graph API. 
Brad Fitzpatrick has been following along with these Raptor 
improvements. One issue was having some heuristics to know when it's 
worth firing up the RDFa parser (since there's a lot of HTML in the 
Web). I'm optimistic we'll see some RDFa support (whether html or xhtml; 
I guess this depends on raptor/librdfa), ... I'll ask.

cheers,

Dan
