It's back in 2000 that RDF was first introduced in Drupal. Dries had 
included an rdf.php [1] file which was then replaced by RSS. Since then 
there has been several attempts to bring RDF back in the game in 2005 
with relationship [2], in 2006 with semantic_search [3] and 2007 with 
the RDF API [4].

At the end of the day, Drupal is a do-ocracy [5]: nothing will get done 
until some folks decide to go and do it.

all the best,
Stéphane.
